    Every day when I get home from school I get a threat detected from AVG. I deleted the trojan. Everyone told me AVG deletes it once it's in the Virus Vault. Which is where I send them all. THEY STILL POP UP! WTF?!

    It's just a trojan. I can still use my computer fine.

    I think it might be a keylogger, I can't acces my RS account? How do I delete it?

    What if I used my TinyPC. Would it be good to leave it on all the time instead of turning off the pc and on when I needed to use it?

    Also, can a keylogger log keys on TinyPC if I have it running in virtualpc?

    AVG is still shit.
    Get Avira Antivirus or Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast! Antivirus.


    A keylogger won't stop you from logging into Rapidshare, but will most likely record virtual key presses.

    1. The Virus Vault is like a seperate Recycle Bin for viruses.
    2. It probably infected your Start-up folder, or maybe (hopefully not) your MBR.
    3. Keyloggers don't interfere with typing or login. I don't think you have a keylogger on your hands. Just remember: usually, the case is

    P I C N I C
    r-n-h-o-n-o
    o---a-t----m
    b---i-------p
    l----r-------u

    Sorry, RS as in RuneScape. I'm using a bot and no the bot didn't steal my password. It's a keylogger.

    Protip: Bots sometimes contain keyloggers.

    Better not be using your GBAtemp username as your RS username. Ban time otherwise!

    I've been using this bot for a year or two, nothing on all 7 accounts used. Always used the same scripts.

    Also, what about tinypc in virtualpc, can a keylogger work there? Should I use Tinypc as my main pc now that my comp is infected? (I have it on virtualpc)

    AVG has been crap for a while, someone will probably suggest a better combo but I personally use Malwarebytes' and Microsoft Security Essentials, works like a charm.
    Clean out your PC, make sure it's clean, restart it, scan it again until it's clean. If it's still not clean after doing this several times, take it from there by asking on some forum dedicated to whatever it is.
    I'm guessing you're running TinyPC as a virtual machine, if you are running things inside of a virtual machine shouldn't be able to effect your actual machine, but it's not like it's totally impossible.

    If you're running things you're unsure of or downloading questionable things (torrented porn from shitty websites or other such things) chances are you'll eventually catch something. A lot of keygens will send you messages, yes, this is common, also in bots. They need to log keys, so yes it's important, as long as it's not actually sending the information off of your computer you should be fine, you can probably contain it with something like sandboxie to make sure it's not.

    Yes it can detect virtual key presses using things like TinyPC/VirtualPC.

    Get rid of AVG Antivirus.
    Download Avira http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus
    Run the scan and let it quarantine your virus'
    Right Click the Avira icon -> Start Avira -> Administration -> Select the files and press Del
    Get MalwareBytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
    Run a scan and let it remove any junk it finds.

    If a virus keeps coming back every time you delete it, either it's seeded/rooted (i.e. it has a hidden file that, on startup, spawns an extra copy of that virus), or AVG is giving you a false positive. My experience: both are as likely as easy other. In fact, AVG is so easy to infect/corrupt/disable, that it's been a laughing stock in the anti-virus scene for a decade.

    Use Avast or Avira, in combination with Malwarebytes and/or Microsoft Security Essentials. They each look for different things, which together account for 90% of the viruses out there. Of course, if you use warez/crack sites and hacking/botting tools, then no amount of protection will ever be enough.

    EDIT:
    Do you realize how dumb that sounds? Not only does it make Rydian not want to help you, it's a threat against anybody who might still want to help you after reading your posts about botting on Runescape and being proud of it. You're really not helping yourself. When asking for help, the worst thing you can do is threaten the people helping you.

    Never heard of it... and that's typically not a good thing, especially when there are known good and proven alternatives:

    MalwareBytes
    Spybot S&D
    Ad-Aware

    Um, okay. Well, I downloaded those both.

    Also Rydian I posted my post the same time you posted yours so I didn't respond because I didn't know you posted.

    Jagex has banned your account because you were going against the rules.
    If you don't agree to go by the rules, you don't play the game. As simple as that.

    One, no, it would say your banned. Two, I got my account back. Jagex approved. Luckily I know my invoice number for my membership I bought... [​IMG]

    My computer is currently scanning. On my moms right now.

    I WAS HACKED. My money is gone.
