Have I got a trojan infection ?

Avast has picked up 2 instances of Win32:Agent-DPZ[Trj], are these trojans or false positives, and is it worth me sending to Alwil.

Thanks

Steve

It seems that Alwil already know about it. Scroll down and look under 12.12.2006 - 0657-0 click here

OMG, now thats a long page.

Whats this VPS History all about then?

Not exactly sure what VPS stands for - but the list at the link I have you is the list of viruses which Avast has added to its definition updates in the last few days!

  Jackcoms 16:44 14 Dec 2006

That should read - "the list at the link I GAVE you"

Do you have any clue as to how serious it is.
My Cyberlink program is affected and a restore point too! Although can't I just delete all my restore points to sort that problem.

Another thing is the fact that if they have just updated the definitions then I may have been infected for a while?

The thing you need to know about Avast, is it 'complains' about alot of 'viruses' that others don't pick up because they are that low-level.

You could do a google search on the name and see what comes up, but I think your safe

Sorry, no idea about how serious it is.

Did you allow Avast to delete/quarantine it?

It might be worthwhile turning System Restore off (you'll lose all your restore points) and scanning again with Avast and any anti-malware programs you have.

Both instances are in the chest. I've deleted my restore points, and once I find an anti malware program I like, I'll do a scan. Any suggestions for the latter? Sorry to go off topic!
