I'm not sure whether to post a HJT log yet, i'd just like to ask a question first oOO(hope I'm doing it in the right place) ......Today after my AVG finished scanning I came back to find that it said that I had 3 x trojan horse downloader,generic 5.PIO and one other trojan something another :flowers:

Trojan horse downloader,generic 5.PIO was showing up as being in my ad aware2007, I'm a bit concerned because I have been using ad aware for a long time and have made no changes so I can't see why all of a sudden it's showing this. AVG has now deleted all these files. :huh: :thumbsup:

Something just doesn't seem right ....can anyone help

Oh Yes............ no other scan indicated that there was anything wrong
