What exactly is the Agent-L trojan/virus and what does it do?

I didn't have a problem with it until earlier when I kept getting virus alerts every 15 seconds. I would move it to the chest but I kept getting the alert. I restarted and everything seems to be fine now.

Is there anything else I should do ?

Hello PCIlliterateGal,

What anti-virus program were you using that kept giving you the alerts?

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.?

Troj/Agent-L. It could be that or something else. Many of these detection names are vendor specific. Thus its sometimes hard to determine unless we know the exact name of the file associated with the threat and what location (full file path) that file was found.
