Help!!! I can’t remove Trojan horse TDSS.CA virus from AVG Internet Security. It is driving me nuts. AVG Resident shield window keeps popping up from time to time saying that this virus found. But it won’t let me remove it. AVG only gives 2 options “Protect me” and “Ignore threat.” I click the “protect me” option, but then AVG says, “Removing of threat has failed” and it doesn’t let me ignore it because AVG prevents me from accessing the infected file. How do I get rid of this threat permanently?
