    Re: Use avast antivirus for removing W32.Braid.A@mm

    Use the avast antivirus software for removing this W32.Braid.A@mm from your computer system. I am suggesting this because your current antivirus software is not able to delete this W32.Braid.A@mm from your computer system. If you do not want to change the antivirus software then try to upgrade the AVG scan antivirus of your computer system. You can do this by downloading the upgrade patches from its official site.

    W32.Braid.A@mm which is detected on your computer system is a kind of internet worm which spreads through the email address collected from the DBX and HTM files. The infected email contains the attachment file with name called “ReadMe.EXE”. Once this W32.Braid.A@mm enters your computer system then it copies itself to the windows system folder with the name “Regedit.exe”.

    W32.Braid.A@mm worm uses the IFRAME vulnerability for infecting the computer system. When you are viewing the e-mail then in the background an embedded code start its work and drops the virus on your computer system. So for avoiding such kind of problem you have to patch up the security file. The patch up file can be downloaded from the link given below.
