Yesterday, I got an AVG Identify Protection pop-up saying it found IDP.ALEXA.51 on my computer. It’s an Asus with Windows 7. I am not sure what triggered it. When I clicked on Google Chrome shortcut on my desktop, it had an error that says application wrong pathway or something like that. Besides, I failed to move my files to mobile hard disk drive. In the middle of the process, an error happened and it just stopped. Does that means all of my applications and files are infected? I don’t have any experience in removing Trojan, so I clicked on the pop-up and wanted AVG to help me fix the problem. However, it tells me this version of AVG can’t remove the Trojan. I need to buy its full version. If I buy AVG, can it get rid of IDP.ALEXA.51 Trojan?
