    AVG Anti-Virus found Trojan Horse Generic11.PWW in C:\Document and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Setup Files\AIR\Adobe AIR Installer.exe, I followed instructions to move the file to the virus vault. Everything seemed to have been done correctly. Shortly there after a security warning window popped up that said AVG had found the same Trojan Horse but in a different location - This time it was in C:\System Volume Information\_restore-{076E216A-6C99-4D0C-9F4A-9F6D3AAF52C1}-\RP64\A0032152.exe!! I did the same thing as before and move it to the virus vault. Sneaky pain in my bum!! :eek:

    If anyone could help me get rid of this bugger I would appreciate it very much. :)

    Here is my HijackThis log. . .

    It's likely a false positive detection. I don't see anythng malicious in your log. I would release the file from quarantine and upload it to Jotti's to have it anyalyzed to be sure:

    This is the location of the file:

    C:\Document and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Setup Files\AIR\Adobe AIR Installer.exe

    Here is the link to the Jotti file scanner.

    Please copy and paste the results here.
