I have just run my weekly antivirus check with avast after updateing the virus database. The check threw up the above problem and added it to the virus chest. I googled firstly screnc.exe and it seems to be a command line utility and is in the MS database. I then googled 'informer50' and only 3 entries came up. click here

Has anyone come up against this virus/malware.

To VoG™ - have you come across this as the only things I have installed recently have been Jetaudio and Realalternative as we discussed a couple of days ago ref. Realplayer screen turning green on BBC website.

Avast was the one that spotted it. Just a bit of a coincidence VoG™ that it seemed to appear fairly recently after I had installed the two programs you had recommended to me.
As you say seems that it is supposed to be safe as link shows which I had seen previously. Just seemed strange at the time that avast alarmed at it and it had not caused a problem before with avast or AVG which I have used in the past.
Heh ho. Experience I suppose it is called. Thanks fellas.
