Specs: Windows XP, 1.20
I am infected with Trojan Horse bho.jew, my AVG detects it and "supposely" heals it, but everytime I restart pc, an annoying pop up from a fake antivirus scan pops back up. The AVG detects it again, but it always comes back everytime i restart. I did a couple of scans to C:\, but so far nothing. Any ideas of how to get rid of this? Thanks.

Try MBAM and SuperAntiSpyware , They should be able to deal with your problems .

http://www.superantispyware.com/dow...

Try the free versions of each , they are fully functional but do not offer full time protection .

Probably a rootkit problem.
You can try the free rootkit remover called unhackme:
http://www.greatis.com/unhackme/dow...

How to use it taken from the authors site:
After the installation is completed, the program should be activated using the menu
Start - Programs - UnHackMe - UnHackMe.
Removal Procedure
1. Click the Check button.
2. If a Trojan will be found you will see the Results page.
3. Click on the Stop button and restart your computer.
4. A rootkit will be completely deleted at the next reboot of your computer.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
