Default Trojan Horse Proxy.pvp

Last night my idiot sister hit a sight that loaded us with Viruses and trojans. Most of them I got but one keeps lingering

Trojan Horse Proxy.pvp it's file name is System/regserv.dll

No matter how many times AVG heals it it pops back up when I restart.

does Symantec have any tools that could permanatly get rid of it?

Web searches don't seem to bring anything up about it.

Since it's a Trojan, you'll probably be better off getting rid of it with a Trojan scanner that is dedicated for removing these thing while in safe mode. There is link on Symantec for this for manual remover, if I find one I'll post the link.

Trend also has a program called Sysclean. Try that as well.

Follow these instructions carefully

Download ALL 4 programs and update them as soon as they are installed, this is very important, except for Hijackthis!.

Ad Aware SE Personal Free

Spybot Search and Destroy Free

Microsoft Antispy

HijackThis Free

Ewido

Follow these steps

Delete the prefetch folder C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch, this folder will come back on next reboot.

Delete all cookies and temporary internet files in the control panel.

Go to Start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, disable everything except your antivirus, click apply, dont reboot yet.

Download Msconfig Cleanup below

Msconfig Cleanup Free

Run Msconfig Cleanup after you unchecked the items you were told to uncheck and recheck, click "Select All", then click "Clean up Selected", then click "Quit".

Now run each spyware program 1 by 1. Running all 3 at the same time will slow most systems down.

When each program has finished scanning, remove everything.

For Microsoft Antispy, after it has finished scanning, some items will/might be on ignore, you will need to select remove unless the program is valid such as VNC Viewer, etc.

Now go to the recycle bin and delete everything that is in it.

When finished with the scans, reboot, and go into Safe Mode and run these scans again, remove everything they find, and then reboot back into Windows in normal mode. You dont need to run Hijackthis! yet.

Then run HiJackthis!

Save the log, copy and paste the log on www.techist.com
Do not attach the log, copy and paste always. This will make things go much faster.
