ClamAV + Spyware Terminator

I'm unsure of the rest of the AVs but I use ClamWin together with Spyware Terminator. It works like a charm so far. Never have been infected. =)

i recommend using Avast antivirus, they have a free edition but need to renew registration every year. good becos it can detect malware & trojans. you can read it here

Avast is better than AVG in terms of features & speed & less resource hogging.

I like Avira cos it's very fast but less features.

hmm need to wait till I get a spare thumbdrive first then i can try out. anyway AVG has managed to move the trojans to the virus vault and I just deleted it from there. Avast can't do anything abt those trojans..seems ok for the moment..

Using Avast. The boot time scan is one of the most efficient ways to clear virus. Other then that AVG also pretty alert. I got some files which are not trojans, AVG say is trojan and quarantine. -__-"

Since it's appearing again & again, it's prolly ur own pc already infected & keep passing on to ur flashdrive/phone. So ur wat u did in posts #1, #6 & #10 was "misguided".

Clean ur pc first, then clean ur flashdrive/phone.

YES they shud be removed. Try running Flash Disinfector (google for it) instead of u doing it manually.

As for ur PC, I dun think it's clean yet judging by ur posts...
