    Hi there

    When doing a scan using My Free Version of AVG it told me I have a Virus called Backdoor.Lastdoor then I found out thow to remove it so I followed what I was told to remove it (Got the removal info from the trend website) so I do a scan after following the instructions on the Trend website run AVG seems ot be gone Happy Days I htink to Myself.

    Tonight (24 hours after all of the above) I run Housecall (Trend) and while thats scanning the AVG window appears telling me I have got the Backdoor.Lastdoor Virus again. I dunno why but I am starting to think that htis Virus is coming with the download from the Trend Housecall website because when you do the scan from the housecall site you have to download something and it's the only thing I can think of that may of given me this Virus again.

    So how can I get rid of this again and make sure it don't come back again.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    PS: This is how Trend Micro tells me how to get rid of this Virus which I followed.
    Log on as Administrator.
    Right-click the My Computer icon on the desktop and click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Select Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply > Yes > OK.
    Continue with the scan/clean process. Files under the _Restore folder can now be deleted.
    Re-enable System Restore by clearing Turn off System Restore.
