    I turnd on my pc this morning and my Mcafee caught a trojan called Generic Dowloader.x.

    when I scanned it with Mcafee it found another one called Generic.dx.

    I cleaned them all with Mcafee.

    I am wondering:
    1-where does this come from?website that I visit?I received the same message at home also.
    2-It pointed to my program /KEEPASS PASSWORD SAFE/UNIS000.DAT and on another file iehelp.

    does this mean anything?do I have to worry about my files was stolen?unis000.dat is just for unistall I think and iehelp.
    when I checked on mcafee site it says its low threat trojan.

    3-how can I avoid this in future?

    Thank you
