I think my computer is infected with Cryptic.APP

Recommended Posts


Today an AVG window popped up saying my computer was infected with ijuptehobekeyoi.dll, also called in a different column: Trojan horse Cryptic.APP.

AVG gave me the option at the bottom of the window of removing the infection- and when I selected the eight or so files it said were infected and tried the "heal infection"-- most of the status columns switched to "file inaccessable".

I opened task manager and my main processor is running at 50% (usually runs 1-3% using "system idle") I don't have a clue as to what is going on.

I unplugged the two usb external discs that i use to back up all my data-- so I think that's safe, and I also have an acronis disc image of the C drive on the affected computer, but I don't know how to proceed.

right now I rebooted the machine in safe mode and am running an AVG scan to try to get rid of the problem files-- but I don't know if i'm doing the right thing.

Please help!!
