Windows XP
AV. ETrust Anti Virus
AVG Antispyware + SUPERantispywareFree + CCleaner + Registry Mechanic + A-squared FREE

My AntiVirus has thrown up 3 errors this morning all the same Win31/KolanCryptoA!generic.

AV says it has "cured"

Intrigued to know what it does so researched Google etc cannot seem to find this Trojan but to be on the save side would like your opinion as to what it is please.

The system was defraged on Wednesday and showed no problems then.

Many thanks Ankermi

Win31/KolanCryptor A!generic.

Having had no responses do I assume nothing to worry about? Would be obliged to hear then I can "click resolve"

You have probably not had any responses because others like you cannot find any refferences to your virus.

Since your AV says it has been cured i wouldn't worry too much ; however for peace of mind run an online virus scanner to check click here

Thanks sinbads
Thought that might be the case!

I have just checked my AV again and its "clean" so will close the thread for the time being.

Thanks for the courtesy of a reply.
