Specs: Windows XP
On searching for a web page my computer is hijacked and opens other pages.
I am using XP and have AVG Free 2012 installed.
It list this virus as white-listed: critical/system file that should not be removed
AVG scan says it property values are C\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\cdrom.sys
Trojan Horse Agent_r.AUQ

I cannot see any guide to removal on the web.
Any help appreciated.

Thanks

start with a quick scan with Malwarebytes and fix all it finds.
Also try Trojan Remoer and hitman pro, run them both till they run clean...they find things other progs miss.

Eric, how are you connecting? Wireless or wired?
Open IE click on tools/internet options/connections/Lan Settings and UNCHECK use proxy server.
Close IE and open it again and see if you are online.

If that doesn't work...then download them on a different PC to a thumbdrive or burn a disc...then load them onto the problem PC and run them.

Hello XpUserReal,
I have run the Malwarebytes program on my really old computer. Took more than 3 hours to run and found over 10 infections. These were removed an the computer now appears to run fine.
Thank you so much.
