System infected with Trojan.Agent/Gen-FakeAlert

I am using Windows XP as my operating system and everything was working fine till yesterday, but today when i started my system for listening music, at my start up i got an message as my system is being infected with virus, so i ran NORTON anti virus and it had detected Trojan.Agent/Gen-FakeAlert and was able to remove it, but after sometime it comes back again. Can anyone direct me in removing Trojan.Agent/Gen-FakeAlert from my system.

Remove Trojan.Agent/Gen-FakeAlert from system

If your system is being infected with Trojan then the best way to remove it is to install AVG anti virus which is very good in removing Trojans from your system and at the same time it also protect you again most sophisticated threats, online and offline. It also see that you can’t get or spread a virus, worm, or Trojan horse on your system, so my recommendation is to install AVG and be free from Trojan Horse and other viruses.

My system was also infected with Trojan.Agent Gen-FakeAlert, i had tried out many solution my none of them worked for me atlast i had to format my whole system because Trojan had infected all my drives, i would also recommend you to totally format your drives and install a fresh copy of Operating system and then install AVG anti virus so next time you system will stay free from Trojan Horse and other viruses.

Re: System infected with Trojan.Agent/Gen-FakeAlert

For those of you saying use avg(seems like same person two different name lol), well that aint gonna cut it. Neither avg, panda cloud,symantic endpoint, spyware blaster, a2 antispyware, spyware terminator,malwarebytes flagged this exe.my mbam is a little out of date (84 days). My superantispyware is free version so i was sool. hitman pro did but i only have expired free version which pretty much tells you you have a problem but you cant fix it unless you pony up some bills. mbam did find the registry entries i didnt find on my own. virustotal.com results are above.I used avg on my other pc. For the most part unimpressive as the only two times I got hit I was running avg. I didnt run spybot out of lazyness.
