Trojan Horse Generic19.TKU On Plants Vs Zombies and Bejewelled 2

Last September 20, AVG’s update detected the Plants Vs. Zombies‘ exe file to be containing the Trojan Horse Generic 19.TKU infection. AVG automatically moved the PlantsVsZombies.exe file to their virus vault, causing the Plants Vs. Zombies to be unplayable. This is also true to the Bejewelled 2 games.

After having several complaints, AVG user jirka82 announced the following in their official forum:


I can confirm that the Trojan horse Generic19.TKU is a false alarm which will be removed with the following virus database update (released within a few hours).

Thank you.

The update was made at 2010-09-20 11:56:25 CEST.

If you still can’t play Plants vs. Zombies or Bejewelled 2, update first your AVG antivirus. Then, go to History > Virus Vault in your AVG, select the Plants vs Zombies or Bejewelled 2‘s exe file and click Restore. AVG will no longer flag it as infected with Trojan Horse Generic19.TKU.

  1. Thanks for this info. I already encountered this kind of virus when I try to install plants vs. zombie on my laptop but still I can’t play.

  2. It’s weird ’cause today I opened PvZ and it tries to connect to the web (something it doesn’t do before). Good thing I have the free ZoneAlarm Firewall installed. I just denied the connection.
    Thanks for this heads-up though.

    P.S…. AVG Sucks! I think Avast is better.

  3. Yup, avast i think is better than AVG.
