Hey, there. Last night I downloaded three games from the Internet. One of them was an pop-up game which popped up on my screen and then asked me to download at the time while I was playing LOL with my friends. Things went into a completely wrong way after I installed that game on my computer. Infostealer.Olymvis was detected by AVG this morning. AVG can only detect this virus but can’t remove it completely from the compromised computer. I don’t know why. I was told that I had to remove this virus as soon as I can since it may destroy my computer system files. But I don’t have any clue on how to remove it by manual. Can anyone help me get rid of this virus by manual? Thank you very much!
