My antivirus keeps popping up an alert that my computer is at risk of a virus called TrojanDownloader:Win32/Upatre.G. I cannot get rid of the warning pop up. I ran a full scan and delete the files by following the guide of the antivirus but after I restarted my computer to make what I had done effective the alert was back again. It seems that I am not able to remove it by myself. How can I get it off from my computer completely then?

TrojanDownloader:Win32/Upatre.G is a Trojan virus infection which can be known from its name without any doubts. There have been many Trojans created every day and this one is one of the recent released on the internet. This Trojan is always downloaded by mistakes whilst you download any free or unauthorized download resources.

Any of them can bring chaos to your system and make it work improperly. Many programs will be stuck when they are running. And your computer is just like a snail.
