I have a virus/trojan called HTML/crypted.gen, I am using Antivir, it detects it everytime you open a webpage.  Antivir will not remove it by any means, including Quarantine,Delete,Ignore,Rename, nothing will remove it, if you continue to click through eventually you can get to the website you initially requested.  I have used software at http://www.atribune.org/ that removed all the temp files and such.  The virus is located at the following location.   C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

After deleting everything in this folder and restarting IE, the files are all recreated and the Virus remains.

I need to ask a couple of questions first before recomending any tools.
1- Does this happen with All websites, or is this limited to some of them ?
2- Are you on a LAN or a standa lone computer? , if on LAN how many other machines ?, are they yours ? , do they have Antivirus installed?
3- What exactly is the infection name ? , is the file extension .JS,.VBS or .HTM ? , the full file name will hellp here.
4- Have you tried using other browsers than Internet explorer ? (Opera,Chrome,Firefox) , does the problem persist?
