Yesterday I downloaded something (from someone I knew) that turned out to be loaded with virus'.

It completely took over my computer. I have AVG Pro and i quickly did a scan and it detected some of the virus', but obviously not all. AVG tried to remove the virus' but they wouldn't allow it.

It even took over my administrator rights which didn't allow me to do anything. It removed my command prompt almost everything else anyone would use for help. I tried to do a system restore to the previous day, but it wouldn't let me do that without administrator rights. I was at a loss!

I ended up rebooting in safe mode and completed a system restore that way. I was surprised it let me do.

I rebooted and everything seemed to be back to normal. The whole process seemed way too easy too fix which makes me believe that I still have the virus'.

I did another AVG scan and it found a few virus and it removed them with no problem. I ran Housecall and it found a java_bytever.bx trojan and removed it, but it told me that it detected other infections and to run a scan again. I ran a few other programs and they seem to all find some types of virus (ie. SHeur) then removed them (so they say).

Here is my AVG History....

I am still getting new trojan's being detected every 15-20 minutes, but AVG says they healed them.

How can I find out what virus' are still on my computer? This is on my personal laptop.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
