Virus not found by avast
« on: June 08, 2005, 08:19:49 PM »
I was trying out a trojan scanner called trojan guarder. It said it found a trojan so I went online to symantec for a free scan it found a trojan it was called mini bug. But before i did the scan from symantec I did a boot scan using avast and it found nothing. How can i get rid of this virus.

Send file to in password protected archive (don't forget to write password in message body). Also you can try to scan PC with it should remove virus, but be carefull, at first read all instructions carefully, and change default scanner behavior settings to Ask user.
