Trojan in Spybot S&D?

  Marko797 13:22 29 Dec 2008

Looked at a thread this morning which provided link to Dr.Web & thought, OK, I'll try this one.

Ran it and it picked up "Trojan StartPage 1505" in SS&D.

What's that all about then? Is my SS&D corrupt?

click here to download the correct version of SpyBot Search & Destroy 1.6.

I don't know whether the version you've downloaded from Dr.Web is malicious, but the version on the Safer Networking site doesn't appear to contain any malware.

kind regards

but I've had SS&D on my laptop for ages with no probs. It's only since running the Dr Web from a link provided in this forum that anything has ever been picked up. It's also picking up Trojan 21845 in connection with my AOL software, and others to do with Google toolbar. Wonder if these are false positives, or what?
