Hi guys i have installed avg 8.5.409 on my laptop with spyware doctor but seem to have some sort of viral or spyware infection on it. the following are the messages i keep receiving off avg "Trojan horse Downloader.Generic8.BROZ";"C:\Users\Rich French\Downloads\windows_media_update.exe";"Moved to Virus Vault";"18/09/2009, 21:17:32";"file";"C:\Windows\explorer.exe"

Everytime i go to use the internet its gone very slow and my firefox won't load at all, and if it does its just littered with pop-ups from internet explorer somehow!!!
IE wont load, google chrome will but is very slow.
And every so often avg flashes up with THREAT DETECTED exploit rogue scanner!!
This has got very annoying over the last few weeks so i thought i would ask u guys for some help as its getting on my nerves, thanks very much

Download this ISO file, burn it to CD, start your pc from this CD and scan it for viruses.
Before starting to scan, use the option to update the software.

Hello and welcome to the forums ,
Malwarebyte's Antimalware , the fully functional scanner is free to use , real time protection is shareware .
download from the link below , update and run the quick scan remove all it finds and reboot ,

Also try SuperAntispyware , this is also free for the fully functional scanner

and clean up with CCleaner ( free )
