To whom it may concern,
Hello, I am having an issue with Winamp the media player. I have had it for nearly 9 months now with no problems until today. I have it set on my keyboard as a 'hot key' quick link. When I Clicked to activate it a pop-up from AVG said it had a Trojan and so I clicked to clean/heal the infection and AVG said some files were not deleted and Microsoft thing said winamp had a problem and needed to close. I did the send report thing. So I did a pc scan with AVG and it detected some tracking cookies and as usual I deleted them. And then I uninstalled my winamp then rebooted the computer. Then I went to download winamp again and after the install it tried to load the wizard for winamp when the same issue happened again. AVG said it had this Trojan: Trojan Horse SHeur.CLZE
I'm not sure if it's a real Trojan or just some bug in Winamp due to an update winamp might have had. I googled this Trojan and only one person said on a yahoo site that they think it might have something to do with a recent update for winamp. I really don't know what to make of it. None of my programs are picking it up. I mention below what programs I have and am using at the time. I also did a Housecall free scan and it deleted some cookies is all. I would also like to know if I should try another spyware program to make sure it's still not on my pc if infact it is a Trojan. I mean why would AVG say it's a Trojan if it's not? lol. oh and while I'm at it I play a online RPG game and should I not play it till I know for sure this Trojan is gone? Is it safe for me to login to this game and play without risking being hacked?
Sorry for all the questions but I just want to make sure my computer is safe and clean. Thanks again for your time and help in advanced. My system specs are listed below.
I am using a Dell Dimension 8400 Media Center addition desktop computer with XP pro and SP3. I have AVG Anti-Virus Pro 8 (paid version) and I also use AD-Aware 2008 (free version) and Outpost Firewall Pro (paid version). I also use IE 7 and Firefox Browsers just in case you needed to know.
