Greetings, all -
A friend just called to say that her AdAware program found something called "win32.trojanclicker", and when she ran SpyBot it reported "Beast". We're looking around now to see if we can get it off ourselves using those programs, or if we will need some help. More on that later, I'm sure.
Meanwhile, here's my question:
In all the times I've had those or other programs report they've found malware on my or a friend's system, McAfee and/or Symantec was running -- and did not block the malware (which is supposed to be its purpose?), and when we ran a McAfee scan by hand, it never found anything wrong at all.
How can that be? It looks really weird that the freebie programs can find all this stuff, but the pay programs can't? Am I just imagining this? Or is McAfee really not looking?
