The antivirus program I installed on my computer reported that my computer has been infected by this Trojan Horse PSW.Generic11.CIZG virus. Though I think I notice the infection in time I have barriers in removing the virus completely. I can’t make the step on finding out the exact path of the virus on my system files. Every time I restart my computer and scan it fully it would be found out again. How can I eliminate it for long?
