    my friends, i would like you to kindly do your best to please help me

    i have an file invaded by a trojan called 'istactivex.dll', or 'Trojan horse Downloader.Istbar.5.H'
    which my grisoft antivirus avg tells me is in the file
    'C:\Documents and Settings\User New\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\WHUB852J\0006_regular[1].cab:\istactivex.dll'

    a good friend of mine, who i trust very much, adviced me to scan with TDS-3, but unfortunately it didn't work, it found only one positive identification, that i rightclickled and deleted, but had nothing to do with my problem

    i updated the tds after downloading, overwriting the initial 'radius.td3', then i ran 'full system scan', operating in safe mode

    THE ONLY THING THAT I COULDN'T DO, WAS TO DISABLE MY 'AVG', BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW HOW

    in any event, anyone knows how do i disable the anti virus grisoft 'avg', newest version 7.0?

    regards and thank you very much to all of you,

    Hi there and welcome to the forum!
    To disable AVG normally via the systray icon open the GUI, uncheck all options, the systray icon should gray out and you can close it.
    Now scan with TDS, make sure to use all scan options and worm slider on highest.
    Does this help?

    Hi aussurucq, If needs be you can scan with TDS3 in Safe mode.
    Safe mode can be acheived by pressing F8 during boot up just before Windows starts to load.
    gpdev's suggestion about scannining with Anti Spyware programs is a good one. :)

    Re: thanks a lot, JOOSKE!

    to get rid of the problem which is in the temporary internet files cache and therefore not active on the computer

    1) Open Control Panel
    2) Click on Internet Options
    3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
    4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
    5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
    6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive

    Hi, aussurucq

    Thanks but no thanks, I am hopping that's not the Christmas Card that's been reported about on the World Ceefax and Teletext news. :eek:

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:
