stejan,

More importantly,  which anti-virus program detected them?
Please give us the full name of the virus as it appears in the "alert".

DO NOT SEND ANY OF THE FORUM MEMBERS COPIES OF THE "VIRUS" UNLESS SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED TO DO SO!

If you are offered the option to IGNORE, DELETE OR MOVE TO CHEST ( Or Vault), THEN pick the "move".
We don't want you to delete a needed file that comes up as a "false positive".
A false positive is NOT a damaging virus, but a program that starts by itself, uncommanded by the user which might be completely harmless and normal.  The anti-virus program sees this, and questions "why".  Therefore you get the alert just to be sure.
I am keeping the explanation as simple as possible for you until you become more familiar with virus terms.  OK?

The two .sig files are harmless; do you or did you run Panda's scan at on point? Panda doesn't encrypt their signatures, so all AV's trip over them... :D

As with the 3 dll's, are you just looking in the chest? Avast likes to keep a copy of system files in the chest; ignore them.


And last but not least: I see no evidence you are infected. The two .sig's seem to be false-positives, and the 3 other files are auto-chested by Avast. All is normal and well... :D

Hi,
It'd help if you checked the spelling on the virus names and the supposedly infected files: please also list the complete path where the malware was found..

Did you do a full systemscan with uptodate avast ?

advice on a generic trojan detection is a bit difficult, you might try onlinescaners, e.g. by
www.Trendmicro.com
www.ravantivirus.com
www.bitdefender.com

to test for false alarms or get a more detailed virus description plus removal tips..
