Hi,

I run AVG as my only anti-virus, and run a full system scan each day. Today 2 Trojans have been discovered.

I run Avid editing software on my computer, and both viruses have put themselves in its Epiconf230 File (Avid->Utilities->ATTOFC->EXPRESSFC->Utilities->Epiconf230).

I am pretty stressed out cos I don't know what to do about this...

AVG gives the virus name as 'Trojan Horse Downloader.Generic7.RXC' and the status of the first Trojan is 'Infected, Embedded Object' and the second is 'Infected, Archive'


Please help!!!

Is the embedded file an essential one for the software to run?

Just a suggestion you could delete all the files and re-install the program, but this depends on whether the trojan has linked itself on to windows processes such as Winlogon.exe, in which case it will just re-create itself when you perform a system restart.

If you cannot delete the files in normal mode, boot in safe mode and try again.

Hope this helps,
cornzey

OK I will try and find out if that is an essential file, and if not I'll delete it.

Reinstalling Avid is a terrible option but I suppose it's a lot better than a full re-format.

Cheers, will let you know how I get on

Found out that it was fine to delete the file. Did that, and have just run another full system scan and all looks to be back to normal.

BRILLIANT!!!

Cheers for the help. This is a great forum; I've learnt a lot from browsing over it whilst trying to get this all sorted
