Need help for removing Win32.Buddy.a virus
  

My antivirus software is behaving in abrupt manner. Means it is giving me an alert message from the last week that Win32.Buddy.a is detected on my computer system. But my system is running in a smooth way. I do not have idea what is happening. Either my antivirus software is not working properly or my computer system is really hit by the virus name Win32.Buddy.a. The thing I want to know is the method to remove this Win32.Buddy.a problem.

Win32.Buddy.a is trojan

Basically your antivirus program is working correctly, your computer system is really hit by the virus name called Win32.Buddy.a. Actually Win32.Buddy.a is not a virus it is Trojan horse. These kinds of Trojans are designed to steal the confidential information from the victims computer system. Confidential information may include your banking credential.

You are not able to delete this Win32.Buddy.a. Trojan from your computer system because it alters the registry of your computer system so that it can launch at the time of reboot. It also copies its files in the directory. C:\Windows\System\NortonAntiVir\REGISTRYREMINDER.EXE hidden file to RUN= string
It also place the AIM REMINDER.EXE file in the \Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\ folder.
