Virus alert after last update ???
« on: October 26, 2006, 05:59:59 PM »
Hi,

Today i get the virusupdate "0643-5" and the programversion "4.7.892" after the restart of my PC, Avast tell me that i have an Trojan on my Computer. He say Notepad.exe is infected and the dllchache notepad.exe or so.

So i let him remove it to the container. After that i go to Jottipage there i let test the 2 files again but only Avast found there the virus all other say -- nothing found. --

So, now im thinking thats maybe an false alarm of avast. What do you think?

Ahh avast exactly say :
Sign of "Win32:Qqpass-DY [Trj]" has been found in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\notepad.exe" file.
and
Sign of "Win32:Qqpass-DY [Trj]" has been found in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\notepad.exe" file.

Hi,

Exact same problem. I took my (original) XP pro CD and searched for notepad.ex_ and let avast! scan the file.

SAME PROBLEM. Guess a little bug in the latest database?
