    Hi, It turns out that my 1yr old hp comp didnt come with an antivirus software, and I just reasonatly downloaded the AVG virus software and deleted 21 viruses off my comp...but the one virus that wont die is Downloader.Stubby.A. When I start up the computer, I get a message saying AVG has found Trojan Horse Downloader.Stubby.A in C:\system volume information\_restore{6CD01810-EFB9-4AF0-A405-DEO7EB8CD51D}\RP330\A0119117.exe, then it tells me to run AVG. I do, AVG doesnt find anything, I restart and the message comes up againo_O This virus seems to only target my internet, not even my e-mail, just the internet. Forever to get on, forever to get to the next page, forever to get to here. PLEASE HELP!!! I am getting so annoyed!!! I hate downloader.stubby.a, thats for shur!!!! Is there anything I can do to get rid of ito_O

    Hi savery. :)

    Welcome to Wilders.

    The trojan keeps coming back because it is in your System Restore.

    Just disable System restore, renable it,create a new restore point, reboot and do another scan to make sure it's gone.

    If you're not sure, here's how,

    Hope this helps.
