|Good Day Computing.net Virus Team,|
After trying for a few days to relieve my computer of Trojan.Crypt!IK I've ran out of answers and really need the help of some experts in this field.
Let me just quickly try and explain what happens to make Emsisoft Anti-Malware detect the trojan (it might be worth noting that only Emsisoft picks up on this Trojan, no other anti-virus software I have used has done).
I have been using Avast-anti virus pro as my virus protection program for about half a year now, and not had any problems with it until recently. A few days ago I thought it was about time to do a full thorough malware and spyware scan of my computer, so I downloaded Emsisoft Anti-Malware and SUPERantiSpyware to help aid me. I had ran a few scans with these two pieces of software and cleared out old cookies, temporary files, etc, no worms, Trojans or anything serious had been detected. However the next day I thought it would be a good idea to do a Full System scan with Avast 4 (I was using at the time) to double check everything is running smoothly.
I was about a 3rd into the scan when Emsisoft which was also running in the background alerted me (and still does every time I run a scan) that avastsvc.exe was trying to write data of a malicious file. I have tried un-installing avast, I've even updated to the latest version, number 5, but I still get the same error message from Emsisoft when I try and run a scan through avast. Emsisoft has also picked some other Trojans up but they seem to have stopped popping up, and it's just Trojan.Crypt!IK. I am at a real loss, I've certainly noticed my computer is much more unreliable since getting this error messages, it also seems much slower, and crashes a lot more.
I have screen shots of the Alert Notification Emsisoft gives me if that would be helpful? I really hope someone can shed some light on what is going on because I am at a real loss :(
Thank you for reading through and any help you can give. All the best,
