Is this a virus?

By nishanth_ac ·
Let me tell the prob. From starting I just plugged a Mob. MMC to my pc and scan using AVG 7.1 Antivirus its result is no virus but rit after the scan pc hung by showing card reader error then I press restart btn after booting I can do all normal operations but I cant access the MMC I tried another MMC also but the result is same but without MMC the card reader is not showing any prob. Then I notice that my AVG auto protection is not loaded I tried manually but the loading sequence terminates before completing the loading sequence I tried to reinstall the antivirus but its also showing the same problem sometimes the explorer terminates itself and reload wile accessing the CD drive then I tried to terminate some programs by using task manager but the task manager don?t stick much time, so I cant select the task and press end task. Then I tried msconfig it is also showing the same response. But I am able to install pctools spyware doctor it detects 47 spy ware I removed it and scan again but the result is the same scan you please give me a solution for this problem to run my pc normally.

Make sure you do your scans in safe mode to ensure you get the nasties off the computer.

yes, it does sound like a virus. i agree, virus scan with updated AVG defs in Safe Mode with Networking (so you can have internet access to get the updates if you need 'em)
first, turn of System Restore and set your folder options to view hidden and system files (you can't do the system restore in safe mode tho).
i would try trend micro or another free virus scanner if AVG seems to be taken out by the virus. i have seen norton's get disabled by a virus but not AVG however it wouldn't surprise me much.
i have had pretty good luck also with Windows Defender Beta 2 available from downloads.microsoft.com
also scan with ad-aware and other tools in ALL user profiles...
