I am currently looking for a good anti malware application, something that can hunt and kill a trojan. I currently use malwarebytes, but Malwarebytes is not catching and removing this. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was also wondering if the full version of avast! is worth it.

what are you seeing does the pop up have a name like antivirus 2012
does your antivirus give it a name like "trojan.gen2"

Hi :) 

I fix viruses every day in my shops...

A trojan is NOT malware its a VIRUS....

Put on Norton Internet Security 2012......it will find and remove the trojan....problem solved....

All the best Brett :)

Microsoft Security Essentials is free and works great.

Yeah, your right Brett. It's a VIRUS. I know that. However, more and more companies seem to be considering them malware and don't seem to give the option to remove them with anti-virus.

Why on earth would I use Norton Internet Security? LOL.
