well i will start out by saying this .
i have had my editing software crash adobe master suite cs3 corp edition kind of crash
so i went to reinstall it ,on the dvd there was aparently a trogan what not on it and mc cafee found it E:\CRACK\XF-ADOBEMASTERCS3-KG.EXE
IT SHOWS the details as

detection type: trogan
detection name: Generic.dx ,Generic.dx
status: scan after restart

now Iwill say this i went to dell tech chat and they said to call dell on call and they will remotely let me have access to the pc which is something i did do on different ocasions for small issues i had, like sound not playing what have you.
but now i have windows vista which is ok ,, and im slowly learning this thing after 3 month roughly mb closer to 2 .
and im not really shure what is the best solution to this.
when the dvd is in drive E: mcafee pops up saying it blocked this keygen.exe having the generic.dx on it
what is my options here.
do i save just the files for the software..........on another file and leave out the crack file
or what.

and while dell did another scan thru mcafee thru the remote assistance
there was i think 4 or 3 other things that came up which was on removeable media card/storage device (memory pro duo card for camera)

now i found this very strange because i did not think taking pictures and getting a virus possible but dell claims it can happen for unknown reasons.
so i find this very interesting at hand.
now im not all that knowledge able with everything on the pc doing indepth things by changing this or that as far as settings unless im directed else wise thru a dell tech which i find to do when i have questions in concern.

so here is the file found within the memorycard F:\MS download.tmp\ixp001.tmp or it was oo1.tmp ill rescan it if need be but
this is really odd unless someone has gotten into my comp thru a instant messenger via yahoo
the file also is listed as a trogan so odd...............

any sujestions what to do.
and be descriptive so i am not missled here. or do i do the dell oncall which i hope not to so i can save it for a more serious issue if i have one.
my other laptop bein a dell does need to be taken care of thru a debug mode to remove virus which is claimned to be on the registry.
and has gotten there because the day after my norton ended someone had faked a friends identity and sent me a message which had tons of worms and trojans
when i clicked on thier pict to send a reply back to them....no wonder i hate the viral infected world at myspace with the scammers .

ok folks for who ever reads this ,, i hope i am directed in the right direction to resolve an issue with out resorting to dell oncall if possible.

Hi airmaster2006,

The crack indicates that, however you came by it, you're using an illegal piece of software. The logic behind illegal software is that someone sells you a piece of software which doesn't require a valid activation key. You save a little bit of money on the program. They get access to your computer and can do anything they want to your computer, including steal your identity, read your banking information, install key loggers, steal your gaming passwords, or use it for processing illegal data. They know you will not go to the police, because you would be reporting yourself as having illegal software ... which is ... illegal. You need to be sure that this software is not being used on your computer.

Bleeping Computer keeps a list of freeware software where you can look for software you can use without putting your computer at risk. Comb that for some other alternatives:


From what you describe in your post here, I will ask that your thread be moved to the Am I Infected section.
