Yesterday I transferred some files from an external hard drive to my computer and today morning I ran a scan with my antivirus AVG then it gave me warning of infections. It said some of my files are infected with this Win32/zperm and it reported the paths of the infected files. But I have tried so many times and was not able to get them off. How can I remove this Trojan or anything else from my computer? Thanks in advance.
