Avira keeps detecting virus HTML/DSPark.B? Yesterday Avira keeps getting a security alert message saying that it found HTML/DSPark.B in C:\Documents and Settings\…\gspwjg.htm Access to this file was denied. However, when I hit the “Remove” button on the security alert, I get the “System is being scanned” popup which appears to finish. This happens over and over again periodically and makes me crazy. How do I get rid of HTML/DSPark.B Virus without coming back?
HTML/DSPark.B is a vicious Trojan detected by Avira antivirus program. It mainly proliferates through compromised websites, also can be downloaded together with freeware software products. Just like many other Trojan horses, it stays hidden and won’t exhibit any marks of a virus obviously. You may probably don’t realize its presence until Avira is installed and activated. Actually, this virus can expose a “backdoor” to allow hackers remotely access your computer. It also gives the hackers a great way to put additional viruses or software onto your computer and also steal your personal information for malicious purposes.
When this Trojan horse is executed, it creates the potentially malicious files on the corrupted PC. If you keep an eye on the CPU usage rates, you will find it shows an obvious spike and computer is running slow. HTML/DSPark.B can download and install other security threats on the targeted computer system. It also can modify your system setting, disable antivirus program and display numerous annoying advertisements on your PC. Considering this is a nasty virus, it is suggested users to get rid of HTML/DSPark.B without any delay.
a. There will be lots of annoying pop-up ads and fake security alerts;
b. It will block your access to the Internet and redirect everything you do on your browser to malicious web pages;
c. It will reduce your PC performance and create many junk files to wreak chaos;
d. Antivirus programs on the computer will automatically be shut down;

Currently many computer users had the same experience that this virus couldn’t be removed by any anti-virus applications. So the manual approach is always required to combat this virus. And here is the step-by-step removal guide for all computer users.
1. Show hidden files and folders.
Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
Click the View tab.
Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) and then click OK.
2. Open Registry entries. Find out the malicious files and entries and then delete all.

As the above mentioned, HTML/DSPark.B Virus can perform a number of harmful actions once loaded on victim’s computer. It may potentially enable cybercrooks to get access and control over the compromised PC and steal confidential information. And most of time, it takes forever for you to open a page while browsing online. Moreover, it may force you to visit websites and advertisements which are not trusted and may lead you to pay money wrongly for worthless products. Once such dangerous Trojan is installed, it surreptitiously installs harmful files on the hard drive and makes modifications to the Windows Registry, thus, it is highly suggested users to get rid of HTML/DSPark.B Virus as quickly as possible.
