Hi guy's would love a little advice regarding my A Squared result this morning. I recently downloaded and installed the latest update for my BT Desktop Help but when i did all my security scan's (all others were clean!!!) my A Squared flagged up the following "Riskware" Risktool.W32.Pskill.1101. My problem now, "is this something i should be concerned about? and would it be prudent to take measures to remove this?" I would appreciate very much your help and advice

why not run an update now and see if it is still there?

mine runs clear

meant update, and run a full scan and see if that cures it

Many Thanks Guys,

Your help and assistance was most appreciated. I ran another scan and update, all is clean so hopefully things will stay that way. Being relatively new to all things "Computing and "Security" i tend to get a little paranoid lol!! but great to know i can always rely on sound advice from you guy's

I've got same rsult with Mks Vir online - Panda online didn't show what has detected but I assume it was the same. One of "dangerous" files was found in Bt Broadband Help directory [....\btbb\pskill.exe], another one in temp - possibly lastings of update.
I've deleted it but hopefully I'll not miss any important feature.

pays to be aware that not everything that the a2 scan finds IS a 'nasty'

if YOU get into problems best to start a fresh thread of your own

is a compaq or hp pc? if so it's the driver updater

Many thanks guy's for all sound advice i was due to update my BT desktop help, which i did and as it was updating, it subsequently uninstalled the old desktop help files so hopefully my little intruder went with them lol!!! My scans are all clean no little nasties so far, so thanks once again for your help is most appreciated

Have a nice one
