Does anybody here know how to get rid of a trojan horse generic 12 virus? It (or possibly something else that hasn't been picked up by the scan) is really messing my computer up. For example, last night it uninstalled Google Searchbar and now it won't let me sign into MSN Messenger.

Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

System restore maybe. I usually just get my comp to do it for me but I'd guess find the name of the trojan and hunt that mother****er down with the remove button?

Dude get a virus protection thing like McAfee or something. My computer has Windows Live Care and it notifies me when I get one, then cleans my whole comp.

Already tried system restore, but everytime I do, it says the system restore couldn't be completed. I've looked through websites, but others that have had it have got rid of it using software that I'm unable to download (All because of the fecking virus)

You don't need to reinstall windows quite yet.

Try and download something like AVG Anti-Virus from www.download.com. If the Trojan doesn't let you for some reason, do as the above said and put it on a flash drive and run it from there.

Stop looking up porn? In other words, you can't get rid of the virus.

Your Solution: Buy a Mac!

You can go on all the porn sites you want and you won't get a single virus. Mac doesn't get viruses

install onto a portable flash card and get it on your computer?

Antiviruses need to install files into System 32, so it wouldn't work.

I deleted system32 like that guy said, but now my computer doesn't work and I have to use a different hard drive

Nah, I'm not that stupid . I'm gonna send it off (Where I do not know yet) to be fixed.

Also, I have AVG, it can't remove it, and I was able to install NOD32 through a flash drive, but I haven't run a full scan yet. I'll leave it to run when I go to school tomorrow and see if it does anything, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Thanks anyway all

Same thing happened to me, I had the computer wiped, which made it worse, so I got it sent away to the company and they fixed it up

Dude us mexicans barely know how to turn on a computer much less put viruses out to the world. All we do is sell the bootleg movies, cd, and games.

to TS: your best bet is probably a wipeout of your harddrive and reinstall windows.

I don't see the problem. Seems to me it's doing more good than harm.

The trojan isn't messing your PC up, boot in safe mode and run a few scans. If that doesn't sort it, system restore.

*Correction*: Macs do not get PC viruses.


Just backup what you need on an external hard drive and do a destructive restore on your computer.

Before you transfer all your data back onto the hard drive (if you dont wanna keep it on the external), run a virus scan on your external drive to make sure its clean.

Dont waste your time on the free AVG software. It's DECENT at best, but you get what you pay for...

Norton and McAfee aren't much better either. Back in the day they were great, but they're not nearly as good anymore. Reason being - when you think "Anti-Virus Software", the first thing people think of is Norton (or McAfee) because they're the biggest names out there. So the majority of people have those. When you get all these new viruses, they're pretty much designed (and I say this loosely) to attack those programs so when they run a scan, they don't detect them.

Trend Micro is a pretty good one. I installed it on my sisters computer (which had Notron - all definitions up to date) and it picked up 72 viruses/trojans that Norton didn't detect.

The best one on the market right now I can recommend is Kaspersky - hands down.


Good luck with your computer, Brother!

+1 but I also like NOD32. It seems to slow the computer down less
