AntiVirus: Norton and Avg Free

I am having an awful time trying to get rid of this Trojan Densmail. I have run Berbew Trojan Removal Tool, but it said there are none. The AntiVirus programs can not remove it. So any suggestions would be helpful.

I tried both of the programs but neither one of them were able to get rid of this trojan. They did get rid of alot of other ones.

You have tried antivirus and antitrojan so far, glad to hear that you have been able to remove SOME things anyway. These others may not remove that particular one either but IF you don't already use them on a regular basis, you should start. Try these and see what happens. They are all free.

Spybot S&D (download, check for updates, read the tutorial and scan often, it also does some blocking)
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html

SpywareBlaster (a blocker only, download it, check for updates, enable it and leave it alone except for checking for updates occasionally)
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html


SpywareGuard (similiar to SpywareBlaster but works in a different way and does not update as often for that reason.
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareguard.html

Ad-Aware SE (a scanner, download, check for updates, read the directions and scan.
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

cwshredder (stand alone unit)(another small scanner for certain things, ALL other windows should be closed)
http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshredder_download.html

Also do an online scan at one or all of these.
On the first one, make sure you checkmark the box that says "autoclean"

One of the programs has managed to get rid of the trojan. I save the links in case it happens again. Thank you again!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
