Avast 4.8 vs. Avast 5.0
« on: July 11, 2010, 07:50:04 AM »
Hello!

I have (had?) a Win32:Tiny-AFE infection since May (please refer to my previous post http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=59280.0) which I couldn't get rid of, and which obliged me to perform a complete scan with Avast 4.8 everyday before using my laptop.

Yesterday I updated to Avast 5.0, and now when I carry out a complete scan it doesn't detect Win32:Tiny-AFE anymore...

I am insecure as to wheter Avast 5.0 has eliminated this trojan or whether it simply doesn't find it though it is still here...

Any info/help/suggestions are very appreciated!

Thanks and regards,

Graci

did you try the tools suggested in that tread ? malwarebytes and superantispyware ?

If you still suspect that you may have malware you can let Essexboy have a look

Follow the guide and post the logs as attachments in your next reply

Hi Pondus,

Thanks for the replies.

Malwarebytes and Superantispyware found nothing.

Attached are the logs from MBAM and OTL (OTL.txt and Extras.txt, which I really don't understand...)
Thanks again for your help!

Nothing evident on those logs - looks quite clean to me.  As you experiencing anything out of the ordinary ?

Not really.
I just had all these alerts from Avast 4.8 for a Win32:Tiny-AFE everyday for over two months and now after I updated to Avast 5.0 nothing is shown...

What is the infected file name, where was it found e.g. (C:\windows\system32\infected-file-name.xxx) ?

Was it always the same file name and found in the same location ?

Really? Didn't you take any action against the infection?  :o
