Tonight while trying to open an internet shortcut my AVG notified me that the shortcut had a trojan horse. I quarantined it and have no signs of trouble. My question is how did I get it? Where did it come from? Why did it attach itself to a shortcut? Why didn't my Comodo firewall stop it? I'm totally paranoid now. Any feedback would be appreciated.
