    I recently scanned my computer with superantispyware and it cleaned up a few things. I thought I had scanned with AVG earlier but I don't think I had as it started by itself this morning. I had to leave it - I saw it had found something 'bad' and have been trying to find out what it was now that it was all finished scanning. BUT I can just find records of viruses found in scans from a few months back which I didn't even know had been found.

    Anyway, what I have are:
    Trojan Horse Downloader.Zlob.MCQ

    and

    Trojan Horse Clicker.GMC

    The clicker one is located in a programme I use a lot. I have had this trojan horse there before and when I 'fixed' it, it deleted the whole programme. Will I have to do this again??

    I also posted on the malware thread with my HJT log, before I saw these trojan things. Why did superantispyware not pick these up? Are they really a problem?

    Please help. Thanks.

    sorry - i think I was looking at my virus vault.

    The one it found today ('exploit') was also there.

    should I empty my vault?
