Potentially unwanted programs

  Doberman 17:09 19 Dec 2005

A friend recently had a back door trogan and as we forward e-mails to each other suggested I do a virus scan.The scan ( Mcafee) revealed two PUP's,1) adware-Istbar.dldr and
2) Genericpup.a
The scan confirmed that no infected files were found and that no files had been infected. I have quarantined both PUP's.Am I ok and is there anything further I should do ?

try a scan with a few online scanners.

housecall and ewido.

Run your anti-spyware programs too.

If they are all clear and you can't see any strange behaviour or anomalies on the computer then I'd leave it at that.
