A friend said she had problems with her PC; when I did a scan AVG reported this trojan horse. Now safely quarantined, but I can't find it mentioned anywhere (eg in lists of threats). Any info available?
OS is Vista home premium, AVG is 7.5 I think the problem was that she hadn't updated AVG manually for a week or so and the auto update was set for a time of day when her computer isn't normally switched on. I updated AVG and ran a scan and I also ran Spybot for her (it was on her PC but she hadn't used it!) She called me at a time when I was very busy and the problem she reported was quite minor; discoverted it wasn't when i went round. So later today i'm going back to switch off Sys Restore and switch on again to empty any memory of the trojan. I'll run Housecall and at the same time I'll check to see if she has downloaded Windows updates - answer is probably not.
p;3, thanks. We have both been very busy with other things since I started this thread so we haven't done any other scans yet - but she hasn't been using her computer and has now gone away for a week so I won't be able to do anything until she returns. Yes, Sys Restore is still on because i didn't have time to do the things i'd planned. When she returns I'll run superantispyware and A2. Spybot found the same as AVG.
