    When I inserted my USB into my computer today after getting some documents scanned
    a message immediately popped up on my computer saying the " auto run had been halted " and soon after my AVIRA anti-virus gave me a virus alert that I had TR/Dropper.Gen5 which i quarantined immediately.

    But what I don't understand is that I carried out a full system scan directly after that and the scan result was negative for any more viruses and yet later during the afternoon I received two subsequent pop up warnings from Avira thatThe TR/Dropper.Gen5 was still present?

    The first warning that simply popped up about one hour after I finished the scan alerted me to another TR/Dropper.Gen5 the second warning was just regarding TR/Dropper.Gen so without the 5 after the “ Gen “. I assume these are two different viruses?

    Could someone be able to help me remove these permanently and are they very serious threats?

    Thanks very much.
