Hey Guys
My last system scan showed i had a 'downloader' somewhere. What is this and could it have passed on any of my details? I don't know how long it's been on but there has been financial transactions in that time. I'm a little worried.....

Can you give us the exact name of the possible trojan downloader..this includes all upper and lower case.

Alternatively run Spybot/Adaware/asquared

The only details i can find say C:/RECYCLER and then a LONG string of numbers. May be looking in the wrong place though. I use Norton Antivirus 2007. In the security history it says removed. Is that problem solved?

If norton says it has dealt with it,you can only assume this has been placed in quarrantine.

If the recycle bin is not protected by Norton...empty this.

Just to be on the cautious side,boot the computer in safemode (tapping F8 on startup) and run the Norton Anti virus again.

Cheers Bud. I've booted in safe mode and things are still fine. Just wondering if my details could have been compromised before the problem was sorted?
