JS/Downloader.Agent


R

RN1

I am using the latest version of AVG Anti-Virus on my WinXP m/c.

Since last 12 hours or so, AVG has been contnuously generating a
message saying "Threat Detected" pointing to a virus named "JS/
Downloader.Agent". The name of the affected files are usually
something like "ads[1].js", "ads[2].js" etc. which reside in the C:
\Documents and Settings\Ron\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
\Content.IE5\<SomeRandomFolderName> folder.

I guess my PC is infected but how do I permanently get rid of the
infection? AVG generates the above message one at a time & later moves
the infected file to the Virus Vault. I am not sure whether moving the
infected files to the Virus Vault gets rid of the infection
permanently or temporarily.

Someone please suggest a remedy.

Thanks,

Ron

Entering "JS\Downloader.Agent" in Google throws up numerous solutions, the
first of which is:

You could have done the same.

What happens when you run Disk Cleanup and delete all your Temporary
Internet Files?

Delete your Java cache.

First of all, let me apologize for this delayed response....got
entangled in some other work.

How does one delete Java cache?

I have tried all the options that my friends have suggested in
response to my problem but Downloader.Agent still resides somewhere in
my PC. AVG usually pops-up a dialog (saying that the Downloader.Agent
still exists) when I navigate to any web page on the Net. Neither does
SmitFraudFix or VCleaner detect the virus when I run them in the Safe
mode0.

What do I do now?

Also I have noticed that the mouse cursor sometimes becomes
untraceable. When I press the Ctrl key on the keyboard, WinXP does not
show the cursor position/location.

Thanks,

Ron
