    Hey,
    Windows Defender has found a virus called "Win32/Alureon.co" and when i tell it to remove it just re-appears a few minutes later. I have tried boot-scanning with avast! but it doesn't find anything.

    Every few minutes internet explorer opens with the adress "javascript:Refresh" or something like that. Pls help!:eek:

    P.S: Since windows defender detected it this morning i have kept the internet turned off on that computer.

    PP.S: I am using a hp laptop with windows 7 (32bit)\

    PPP.S: I have set a restore point ages ago and don't want to resort to restoring

    PPPP.S: How can I scan my thumb drive to make sure it hasn't copied itself onto it?

    PLS HELP!
