I am running Windows XP Home SP2 on a PC.

My AVG scan noted earlier that I've got a Trojan Horse PSW.agent.VQA but it's in my Dell Support.exe and DS tutorial.exe files. Are these false positives?
It healed them so I thought that it was ok.

I did a Google search and nothing showed for that exact name - there were a lot of questions about PSW.agents but they all had different letters at the end.

Then, just now, I got 2 pop-ups from AVG saying "threat detected" so I chose to heal those. They were the same PSW.agent.VQA but were now located in C:\System Volume Information\_restore. It say "healable - no" in the vault.

I am running Malwarebytes full scan right now. Is there anything else I ought to be doing?

Thanks!
