I currently use AVG Internet protection on my Dell laptop. Last night I encountered a malware problem on a free download. AVG keeps saying it found Trojan Horse36.BAHP virus but never took any actions to quarantine it. When I have tried to remove it, AVG says “Cannot be removed. Data is not valid”. The virus appears to affect the functioning of my PC. Everything is extremely slow on my computer. How do I get rid of it? Any help will be appreciated.
