  birdface 08:27 08 Aug 2009

Hi.I was just browsing through SIW checking my system and got to update.As I had not updated for a while i gave it a try.New update was available so carried on and downloaded it when AVG resident shield jumped in with a Trojan warning.

So pressed delete got a warning if i deleted computer might freeze which it did temporarily then the notice came back and I pressed heal.
Closed SIW and checked the resident shield log and it came up with.

Trojan Horse generic 13.BLFQ Now not sure if this may be a false positive or not but better take care if updating SIW.

I just tried the update out of curiosity - I too got the Trojan Alert, I cured it without any problem, then securely deleted it.

Lots about it on Google ...

I just updated with NO problem at all. Maybe I have better security on my computer.

Or maybe not! Perhaps your security missed it???

Or worse whatever way you take it.
At the moment using AVG Security Suite.

Tried googling for the trojan and got very little.So tried SIW trojan and got lots of response like Technotiger said.
