Clicker Trojan

  Clapton is God 13:57 13 Jun 2009

I've just run a scan with A Squared and it found 15 instances of Trojan-Clicker.HTML.Agent!IK.

Oddly, they were all sitting within the Log files of my AV software, Avast as .tmp.mdmp files.

A Squared was unable to remove them as it claimed they were write-protected.

I attempted to remove them manually but, again, I couldn't because of the apparent write protection.

I ran a scan with Avast and it found nothing.

Is this some sort of false positive??

When i had a-squared installed on my pc, i used process explorer and found that a-squared was packed, so i removed that software and only used malwarebytes instead. >>>click here

Do a scan without an internet connection.

Best of luck ,,,,,,

If you realy want to delete the files here is how,

Temporarily disable the avast self defense module:
1. Right click the 'a' blue icon on system tray.
2. Programs settings > Troubleshooting (tab)
3. Disable self defense module
4. Delete the files.
5. Enable self defense module again.

Thanks for your replies.

mfletch - that solved it!

Which begs the question - how the hell does a Trojan manage to get into an AV program?

AV says it all.Trojans + Malware you need Anti-Spyware programs to find some of them.
