Virus Removal Help W32.Jeefo

by roback80 / October 16, 2012 2:09 PM PDT

I appear to have a virus on my computer (Windows 7) and despite running my Symantec AntiVirus, AVG and McAfee virus tools, I cannot seem to find it and remove it.

The information I have found online also does not seem to have helped.

Essentially what happens is every night my Symantec picks up files (Usually of the naming convenction: DWH####.tmp) located in my AppData/Local/Temp/ folder.

Now they are immediately quarantined and I can go in an permanently remove them, but hundreds more appear on a nightly basis.

I am not sure what to do to remove this so that i don't have the Virus scan window open all the time. (and of course so I can rest easy that I don't have a virus!)

Any assistance would be fantastic!
Thanks
Rob

About all those antivirus tools.

It still seems to be true that "There can only be one" of such on a machine or odd things happen.

I have a few tools but they are carefully selected to avoid any overlap. And a scan only is done with apps that don't install real time protection.

Just wondering if you knew about this.
