On booting up my wifes laptop avg started a scan and detected a trojan. It is Trojan horse Generic 10.BHES. It seems to be attached to an adobe update as that is the file path. It is now in the avg virus vault. Is the computer safe and can i simply delete it from the vault? Avg did ask if i wanted to heal so i clicked yes. I have done another scan and it hasn't found it again. Have i done the right thing in healing this file???
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Looks like a common issue, I suggest keeping an eye here for an answer or do a google on it again later.

Don't Panic Mr Mannering

Yes AVG has done its job in detecting healing and quarenting the virus it is safe in the virus vault.
Just use the Pc for a few days and if everything works OK the delete the file for the vault.

I should have added, I wouldn't be too concerned if AVG has healed it, it's the ones that aren't detected you have to worry about!

AVG has dealt with the file so it is safe to delete.
If your scan now shows nothing then you have done the right thing...

If you want an alternative to Adobe (bloatware)
the prog in the link come highly recommended by most on this forum...
