AVG AntiVirus / recycler

1 South Africa Review updated:

I have picked up a virus from my university. It is called a recycler. this program was only picked up once by my antivirus at home. however i still have the virus on my stick and now on my computer. I know that it is still on my stick and computer because when i browse what to scan it shows up as a normal document on my stick and hard drive, however when viewing it in a window one will not find it to delete it. What can I do to get rid of this virus?

    Another free scan you can do is use Trend micro Housecall... It's a free online scanner so it won't be as quick to get started as if it were directly on your hard drive but it will get the job done just about as good as the paid software... IMO Trend micro has been the best at removing malware. Trend Micro AV was also the AV we recommended when I used to work at Geek Squad. So Trend Micro Housecall should be a good alternative if ya don't wanna buy the real thing. Just do a google search for Trend Micro Housecall to ge tstarted.
