Hi,
Can you tell me what Trojan.Win32.FraudPack.gen is and what it does? This is a follow up to my last post with a bit more detail.
Thanks
Lecy

Trojan.Win32.FraudPack.gen

Each security vendor uses their own naming conventions to identify various types of malware. What program is alerting you to the infection?
Did your anti-virus provide a specific file name associated with this malware threat(s) and if so, where is it located (full file path) at on your system?

I have removed your other thread. Please do not start new threads or duplicate topics as this causes confusion and makes it more difficult to get the help you need to resolve your issues. Thanks for your cooperation.

I was alerted to this Trojan by Kasperky 7,which consequently neutralized it. I just wondered what this Trojan was and what damage it could potentially do.

Glad to hear Kaspersky was able to take care of it.

Here are some Tips to protect yourself against malware:
• "Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe".
• "How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!".
• "Best Practices - Internet Safety for 2008".
• "Hardening Windows Security - Part 1 & Part 2".
• "IE Recommended Minimal Security Settings" - "How to Secure Your Web Browser".

• Avoid gaming sites, underground web pages, pirated software sites, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs. They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications. Read P2P Software User Advisories and Risks of File-Sharing Technology.
