My AVG anti-virus keeps detecting Trojan horse Inject3.AUPR” and I can’t seem to get rid of it. The virus pops up every 5 minutes in my Windows/Temp folder. I click to remove it, AVG says it has been removed successfully, and then exactly 5 minutes later AVG finds one again. I’ve deleted the Temp folder, and uninstalled any recent downloads that could have caused this, but it still keeps popping up. After 20+ years of using AVG, this virus message is getting to be a real nuisance. Any help will be highly appreciated.
