Hi all,
 
just yesterday my AVG 7 Free Antivirus warned me about having Downloader.Generic.AMM trojan horse.
I haven't found any information about this virus through google, thus I think it is something new.
 
It creates files
C:/all.exe
and also all[1].exe in the IE temporary internet files folder.
 
It cannot be healed, however, all[1].exe can be deleted by AVG, and all.exe can be deleted manually (AVG cannot delete it).
 
Nevertheless, even I deleted it during being disconnected from internet, then run AVG again, Spybot and also Ad-aware, after reconnection to the internet the AVG resident shield detected the same files (and virus) again in a few minutes!
 
Probably the reason and source must be hidden somewhere, I do not know.
Could it be caused by using Internet Explorer? Would it help if I use only FireFox?
 
Please help... confused
 
Thanks

[maybe I could post also the hijackthis.de log file, but may I also in this thread?]

I had the same virus.  AVG would ot get rid of it. 
 
In the end i deleted any files I had downloaded recently and did a system restore to 5 days previously.  So far so good it seems to be gone.
hope this helps

Thanks knaiptah,

I've solved it in a different way - I installed www.ewido.net software and found that I had three additional trojan horses in Java folder which were not found by Ad-aware nor Spybot S&D.

One of them was doing nothing else as continously decreasing my internet security settings and probably downloading also the other trojans.

Thus, I removed these additional trojans and set the internet security setting to high level, and it is now OK!
No new trojans appear!

The conclusion is - try www.ewido.net antispyware soft, it seems to be really good!
(and except the real time protection and some other features it is free).

Regards

cool
Hi, I looked all over for a solution before I found the lead on this site. Thanks!

PROBLEM:
I have been getting virus-warnings for about two weeks with the DOWNLOAD.GENERIC.TROJAN.AJW (or was it AWJ? - not certain of the full name as I deleted all files after the problem was solved). Anyway, AVG anti-virus kept finding the viruses everyday and I deleted them, but the next day they were back.

I tried SpyBot, SpyBlaster, CounterSpy, AdAware, ZoneAlarm, AVG and still I got this trojan alert from AVG everyday after everything else turned up clean.

SOLUTION:
Downloaded EWIDO ( http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ ) - full version free for 14 days - minimal version free after that. It took 2 hours to scan the whole computer (300 Mb of data) but FOUND 111 MALWARE files that all those other programs missed!

FIREFOX WARNING:
Many of these malware files were in the firefox program folder - including infection of weather.exe (the browser weather update plug-in). Others were found in YAHOO MESSENGER folder. A few others were found elsewhere. Why is there almost nothing on this trojan on Google? Perhaps it is so new. It must be very sneaky as it was very hard to catch and all those other programs missed it.

Now I love EWIDO!

RE: my above post. The correct name of the trojan should be "Downloader.Generic.AJW" (or AWJ). That's as close as I remember it.

See two more attached screenshots of EWIDO findings on this trojan.

i seem to have some sort of downloader virus (generic 2) and AVG will heal it, but it just comes back. i think i got a worm on MSN messinger that is downlonding it, but im not sure i am also gettin adware repeatedly downloaded on to my computer. Also when im on MSN messiger a link is sent out to every one onle which is a link to download a virus of some sort, it could be the worm or possibly the Generic 2...
could u give me a hand in telling me what to do, cos i've tryed more or less everything i know how to do. also i can find very little information on this generic 2...
Thanks,
Death12
