Would using AVG/Webroot detect any trojan?

December 3, 2010 at 02:25:59
Specs: Windows XP
If I done a scan using AVG PC Tune Up 2011, Webroot Antivirus with Spysweeper and McAffee Antivirus would this detect all known Trojans?

Just that I done a scan and it removed a Trojan but I was still getting double click errors through google.

I decided to try Stopzilla and this detected a Trojan. I have to pay to get rid of this but don’t want to if the scans I have already will do the job.

In a previous post (please see re-direct blocked using google for more info) I said I was going to check ‘hidden devices’ for TDSSserv but this wasn’t in there. One thing I did remove was an extra line in the host (using notepad).

If I decided to just restore my whole system would this be easier or would a malware still be lurking somewhere in my system?

Thanks. Where's the best place to download malwarebytes?

After I used the stopzilla I did a scan using avg and it detected 28 cookies. Seem to be going round in circles. Hopefully Malwarebytes will do the trick.

Ahh just found.


Will it allow me to remove any trojans etc?

If not how much is full subscription?

Just clicked on download on the malwarebytes site and IE is blocking it at the top of page. Should I still allow download?

get malwarebytes from here:
download the latest version on the right of the page. When setting it up choose manual, that is free.
