I have AVG resident sheild - found 12 trojans -all variants of Troj Horse proxy.x.etc and healed them, but can't heal or remove Troj Horse Proxy.5.F I also believe I have I-Worm/klez.h. The trojan is preventing me from opening any programs including regedit. I have been able to open AVG to run a scan by right clicking and clicking on 'Run As' this somehow gets around the virus and opens - I havn't be able to open any other program. How do I get rid of this if I can't go into regedit? Is there an online removal tool that can dispatch this critter without downloading an executable file? Anything I download will not open as well... cheers, Jake
Thanks for the tip - I ran the scan and it found Troj Agnet.BA but didn't remove it. It says that I should download the program PCilln? I can't download anything cuz it will not open... Do you have any other ideas... Jake
Any program I try to open, an error message pops up that says 'Windows cannont find "name of the program trying to open" Make sure you typed in the name correctly, etc.' So I cannot open regedit, cmd prompt, etc, I cannot open any program. I can surf the net and run asps but anything that says download or run from disk is unavailable. I tried in safe mode and have the same problem. So, it seems that all remedies are not working for me... Jake
I don´t like to say it, but i am pretty sure, someone has hacked your computer.
This is from Sophos link: Troj/Agent-BA is a backdoor Trojan for the Windows platform. Troj/Agent-BA functions as a proxy server, allowing a malicious user to redirect internet traffic through the infected computer. !!
Disconnect to the net, and see if you can open programs now, or maybe do a system restore Touch
Okay, I managed to open regedit by searching for the file name (still works) and then copying it to the desktop then I can right click and open with 'run as' - i figured out most programs can be opened this way... Now that I can get to regedit - is there anything I can do?
The fact that you could right click and run as to start programs was golden info for me. I had the same problem on a friend's computer and through a combination of Glary Utilities and Malware Bytes was able to repair the system. Thank You for the insight guys!
