Avast is showing up a trojan downloader on a full scan and the screen saver scan but not on a quick scan. The virus is in the windows error reporting, report queue folder. I can put it into the virus chest but it still shows up. If I disable windows error reporting Avast scans clean. Is this an actual virus or some false positive?

Thanks Buteman. I think I'll leave error reporting disabled for a while and then enable it and check again in a couple of days.
