Default Trojan horse virus problem (generic29.ajge)

Hi all,

A family members got a Trojan horse virus generic 29.ajge problem on her Dell laptop with Win 7 Home Premium and ZoneAlarm firewall. AVG anti virus notified her but could not removed it. I tried to fix it but could not log on the net.

I did Google it and the solutions were about edit registries and other fancy stuffs and I am not sure I want to touch it. The computer is working fine, just could not log on the net to update anything so I know that the trojan virus is still on the computer.

Do any of you have any suggestions or ideas beside completely reformat the HD and install everything (after a full backup of course)? TIA.

I'd try running a couple bootable AVs. There's a few listed here...

You could also try Combofix. I haven't used it myself, but it works when many fail. Read all instructions first...
