I run AVG 7.5 Enterprise anti-virus on a Windows 2003 domain controller that doubles as a file server.  It picked up Cekar.A virus which infected all the .exe files on this server.  I have run AVG which has quarintined all the files but is not healing them.  I have not been able to locate a removal tool.  If anyone knows a safe method to remove Cekar.A...your guidance would be greatly apprecitated.

There is no removal tool for the W32/Cekar-A virus.

I highly recommend you contact Grisoft's Technical Support by using the following link.


Make sure when contacting them to include version information for your Operating System, AVG version and license number.  To find those details, follow the instructions from the following link.


They will give instructions on what can be done to clean your system using their product.
