Trojan Virus affecting my browser (chrome,firefox).exe?
I have a virus on my computer (A Trojan Horse) thats affecting only the Browser.exe files, for example i noticed it was affecting my Chrome.exe (It showed up on AVG 2012) and i deleted Google Chrome and installed firefox but now its affecting that .exe file.
Any tip on getting rid of it. I have AVG 2012 FULL and ive constantly moved the virus's to the "vault" yet, every time i start my computer it seems to pop up again. then i run scans (full) and it comes up again as well. Ive also tried removing it with windows defender, no luck.
Any ideas would be great!

The malware is active, and needs to be shut down for proper removal.
Run rkill, it's a small executable, no need to install, just download to the desktop, and double click the icon. Read the description to see why you should run it, not much to read:
After rkill has run successfully, install, and run a full scan with MBAM, it's free, and a program you SHOULD have:
Then run a full scan with AVG.

If you have a Trojan or a worm virus you won't get rid of it with virus software, it looks like it is attacking your files in alphabetical order, First Chrome then Firefox, eventually it will work it's way through every .exe file. The only way to get rid of it will be to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system again.
My advise would be for you to install a Free Linux operating system that does not get viruses, malware, spyware worms or trojans, They are fast, stable and secure, they don't crash or freeze up, and most of all they are up to date, March 2012, check them out here

You need to run antivirus in safe mode or better to load from live CD. Also, you may try malwarebytes or security task manager. It has free online scan with all known Antivirus engines. But remember, you need to run one antivirus software at the same time.Source(s): http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/index.html
