NAV ALERT TROJAN.MOO BUT FULL SCAN DOES NOT DETECT

Hi,

I had a Norton Antivirus detection alert which said that my system had been infected with the Trojan.moo. in temporary internet files. A full scan indicated nothing.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Presumably NAV moved the Virus to quarantine, or deleted it - then it would not show up in a subsequent scan - that's what it should do, of course, it shouldn't leave it lying around in the system!!

Any time AVG tells me I have a virus it's always in the Tempory Internet Files. I let AVG deal with the file and imediately nuke every tempory piece of anything on my PC before restarting and doing a full virus and spyware scan.

If you hav not downloaded the Microsoft Anti-Spyware Beta yet you should. Get it here: click here

One of the nice things in it is under Tools and Advanced Tools there is a dynamic tracks eraser that can delete all the tempory information created by every programme you have installed. It's simple and easy to use.

"I let AVG deal with the file and imediately nuke every tempory piece of anything on my PC before restarting and doing a full virus and spyware scan."

IMO that's both paranoid and totally unnecessary, unless you don't trust ABG to work correctly.

Agreed - whatever the AV.
