Hello there, i have KIS 2009(kaspersky) on my desktop, i have windows xp, yesterday i was doing a routine scan, and kaspersky said it had found a trojan called WMA.GETCODEC.AB......or something like that on my it gave me the option to delete it, which I did. and my pc is okay and still running fine...thank God!!!. My question should i be ok now???

Sometimes better to quarantine them just in case they are false positives.Then maybe delete them after a week if your computer is still working Ok.
