      Hi Dave, I ran ESET but nothing came up. No threats was found. I found that my computer is not bad now, and programs are running okay. Except AVG kept saying that C:/program files/autoguarder/autoguarder.exe is still there. I cannot find it in the location provided.

      Ok, download and install MSE and run a scan and see if it finds the same thing as AVG.

        Ni Dave, MSE says that Autoguarder.exe is still there, but in a different location. It looks like it copied itself to another location at c:/system32/autoguarder.exe.
        Now I know that system32 is a very important file so I tried to remove it with MSE. It did, but somehow the virus file come up again after reboot or shutting down. Also I realised that a file(C:/program files/Autoguarder/Folder.bat) was created by something, and my AVG keep detecting them but failed to remove them completely. I opened the batch file in notepad and found that it tries to delete all "dll" files in system32. So everytime My pc boots up a cmd window shows up. But most of the action were denied. However I think 5 dll files were still deleted by the virus.somehow it's not affecting my system mch, but I am very worried.
        thanks!

        Ok Please uninstall this program: C:/program files/Autoguarder

        Please download aswMBR.exe ( 511KB ) to your desktop.

        Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it



        Click the "Scan" button to start scan

        Note: Do not take action against any **Rootkit** entries until I have reviewed the log. Often there are false positives



        On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply

            By the way I cannot find Autoguarder.exe in the Programfiles folder, but 2 other locations, and each of them has a batch file contained called Folder.bat. That's the batch file which tried to delete important files. It says Access Denied when I try to delete it. :(

            You could try UnLocker.

            You can download and install Unlocker .

                Hey Dave, after doing the instructions you gave me in the last post, my computer got a lot faster:). Thankyou very much for helping me with malware this time, and I learnt a lot. I am thinking of installing WOT instead of AVG too.

                You're welcome. Just one note. WOT is not an Anti-Virus program. It's just an aid to keep you from clicking on some dangerous sites. If you want to dump AVG, I would suggest MSE.
                I will lock this thread. If you need it re-opened, please send me a pm.
