Face book fake flash download - how do I remove it

  Rhodie 20:00 12 Aug 2008

I think I have downloaded the hacker file as reported in PC advisor - how do I remove it?

Statement in pc advisor - The malware attack comes in the form of a Wall message supposedly posted by a friend that urges members to click on a link to view a video on a website supposedly hosted by Google. The link takes users to a web page that isn't hosted by Google, where they are told they need a new version of Adobe's Flash player and are urged to download an executable file to watch the video.
The file is really a Trojan horse, Troj/Dloadr-BPL, that funnels other malicious code detected as Troj/Agent-HJX into users' machines. Once it has done that, it displays an image of a court jester sticking his tongue out.

Type ... Fake Flash download removal ... into Google and you will find a Free Removal Tool. I have not used it myself as I do not need it, so I cannot say how good it is. But worth a try - Good Luck!
