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

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

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? :rolleyes:

If you can download and run this scanner: http://www.mwti.net/antivirus/free_utilities.asp

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!

If you still experience the same problem, you better try other antivirus software to remove trojan.

I used to clean (infiltrate) any malware (virus,trojan, etc) with ESS Rescue CD (http://go-thip.com/2011/04/29/eset-rescue-cddvd.html), or, if it still cannot clean the malware, I use mini XP from Hiren's (http://go-thip.com/2011/04/29/hirens-boot-cd.html). Just try it :D, nothing to lose..
