Hello,
I wonder if you recognize this. Lately Ad-Aware has announced at least a couple of times per day that there's been hijack attempts that it has blocked. Now AVG has detected a multiple threat of the above trojan horse. It seems it has infected lots of functions on the computer. What is happening? We are using Windows defender, AVG free, Ad-Aware free and Sygate free firewall. Should we go back to Zone alarm free instead?

Here's the current report list from AVG:

"c:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"c:\Program Files\AVG\AVG9\avgtray.exe";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"c:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\AppleSyncNotifier.exe";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"c:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\Reader_sl.exe";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"c:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"c:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunesHelper.exe";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"c:\Documents and Settings\dan hass\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"c:\Program Files\Google\GoogleToolbarNotifier\GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"c:\WINDOWS\Fonts\cS0LH4.com";"Trojan horse Generic18.BALF";"Moved to Virus Vault"

The last one is the one that tried to access the internet several times yesterday and I denied it.

[#0005ff]Use MalwareBytes from http://www.malwarebytes.com and SuperAntiSpyware from http://www.superantispyware.com and between them, they wil get rid of this Trojan. If you then upgrade to th e"paid for" version of MBAM, you'll get a high degree of immunisation from TGrojans in the future. It doesn't cost much and is well worth the money - just make sure you maintain it up to date.[/#000ff]

Trojan horse Generic 16.JP is a detection used to identify a Trojan that was created to distribute a malicious program and rogue security application
You must provide yourself a trojan remover, it will help you to get rid of trojans horses ,wormes ,adware ,spyware ,when sometimes antivirus software fails to detect and eliminate them. You'll be able to delete them in safe mode (remember to disable system restore & re-enable afterwards) but you'll then need to run a full virus scan to find the nasty that put them there they don't appear on their own.
