I got an alert from AVG. It says my computer is at risk. I have several viruses on my computer. I tried to delete them but not succeed completely. I was able to delete most of the virus that were listed by AVG, but not including a Trojan virus called TSPY_FAREIT.ACU. Similar steps seem not to work on this stubborn one. So I did the removal in some other ways by using different removal tools. Unfortunately I failed the same. For the most good way, it is deleted. But when I have done a restart to make the removal operation effective, it came back. The same warning from AVG is going to drive me crazy since I have been working on it for more than 3 hours. Are there any easy ways to make sense on this issue?
