    Hi there,

    I'm having a problem with an AVG Detected file "JS:Downloader FHY" and removing it. I have done the basics (I.E. websearch for the file, suggestions for removing it) including running the AVG Scan, Rkill then Malware Bytes and still it appears as being detected by AVG when I open a browser or occasionally go to a new page.

    I was hoping you might be able to help me remove this Trojan fully before it becomes more than an annoyance/frustration.

    Thank you.

    That appears to be a false detection by Avast & AVG
    make sure you update AVG to latest set of virus definitions& it should go away
