My AVG antivirus software hase discovered this virus but is unable to remove it. I have since moved my computer so I can wire it directly to my router. I was still unable to connect to the internet until I changed some settings and now I am able to connect but the virus is still present. I ran malwarbytes but it didn't detect an infection. I don't know what to do to get rid of this infection...please help.
