    Hi everyone. I just installed AVG 8.0 on my pc and scanned thoroughly. It did find some viruses and Adwares which included "Adware.Generic", Adware.Titanshieldantispyware. I don't know where these adwares came from. I removed all those things detected by AVG, But my problem is it starts coming again and again. I scanned my system throughly using Spybot search and destroy, It didn't find a single thing at all. Kindly help on this.

    I am posting a screenshot. Kindly look at it

    Hay Krishnan,

    Ok right. Adware.Generic i would think is a Heuristic detection "An educated guess by the anti-virus" being adware it would useually not be malicious just something a user would not useually want in there machine,

    Adware.TitanShieldAntispyware would be one of these unwanted programs, and it may be a rogue antispyware application "Some bad software"

    You should be safe to delete these, Check your program list for TitanShieldAntispyware if you find it delete it in safe mode.
    Or if it still persists delete it in safemode with the anti-virus.

    If all else fails try this tool. http://downloads5.kaspersky-labs.com/devbuilds/AVPTool/

    It has worked for most people and is powered by kaspersky.
