I was trying to help someone with a browser hijacker problem in one of the other forums. While doing that I downloaded a new free program to see how it worked because I was recommending to them that they install some such programs if they didn't already have any.
Anyway I downloaded it, updated it and let it run. When it had finished running it made an evil sounding noise and told me that my system is infected with a couple of Trojans.
Normally, as paranoid as I am about those things, I would have panicked over such a revaluation, however, as this program told me that I had to BUY the paid version before it could REMOVE the threats... but offered me the option to FIX said problem I'm wondering if the report of Trojans is just a sham false positive to get me to buy their product.
I have several other Anti Ad\Spyware programs that I run every couple of days and none of them have picked up any Trojans.
I haven't taken any action on those buggers yet as I wanted to see if there is a way that I can check to see if those suckers are really threats on my system or just a marketing tool used by that company.
I'm attaching a screen shot of what that program said that it found for you to look at.
Thanks for any information on this.
