please help i well give as much details as possible first i have windows xp home edition sp2.

my question is dose the avast resident scanner scan all files on pc like the anti-virus or only the files that are in use . because i installed avast 4.8 and i was going good the sensitivity is on high . every thing is going good until i try housecall in ie 7 it says it was having problems transfering data or something oh and i was using the java kernel . then i tryed housecall using firefox every thing was good then avast showed a messaging saying the sensitivity scanner found WIN32:Trojan-gen {Other} so i choose to delete at next restart so i restarted my pc then did a avast 4.8 anti-virus scan and a avg anti-spyware scan they found nothing . so i thought it was gone i try housecall in firefox again and during the housecall scan it said it found a WIN32:Trojan-gen {Other} so i put it in the avast chest . is the WIN32:Trojan-gen {Other} being found because avastis conflicting with housecall 6.5 has any one else had this problem. here is some additional info .

Hi!

Resident scanner checks files that are currently in use (in simple terms it scans your RAM, Virtual Memory and incoming files - It's more complicated but you get the idea). To perform a full system scan and check everything else you have to manually run it. It is best to run a boot time scan if you want to search your entire drives for viruses.

The problem you mention could be a false positive since a full scan does not indicate any infections. Avast thinks that a certain process is a virus. I'm not sure on what to do in that case but you could try scheduling a boot time scan and selecting "Scan archive files" as well. Doing so may eliminate the possibility of a virus being hidden somewhere on the disk (Avast failed to find viruses located in windows system recovery or temporary files many times if I didn't select "scan archive files").

Assuming that what avast reports is true and this file in Firefox was a real trojan then it is safe to move it to chest, it cannot harm you from there since it remains inactive and locked by Avast!. Then you can delete it frome there as well if you make sure that it is actually a virus.
