My antivirus (AVG) finds trojan horse Downloader.Small.9.BV but it can't remove it!

I didn't expect Stinger to find it, but I was hoping.

Downloader.Small is a fairly common trojan (with different numbers and letters at the end), but they are usually in a different folder than the one you described. I've never seen C\explorer_cab (it should be C\explorer.cab), and can't find any info on it.

I'm thinking this whole folder, explorer_cab.vir:, should be deleted; but let's have someone else confirm this before you do it.

Crunchie had a good idea (as usual); set a System Restore point, and then delete the bad entries, explorer_cab (make sure you delete only the ones with the underscore " _ ").

0

I made the restore point and I deleted the file explorer_cab.vir. Itsn't detected any more from my AVG antivirus! Thank you very much!
