Hi, PC is running XPHome, AVG 8 Av & Firewall. I run Lavasoft's Ad-Aware manually on the weekend to supplement the (almost) daily running of AVG.
On the weekend - & much to my surprise Ad-Aware notified me of a hupigon infection of Superantispyware.exe! Now I recall SAS requesting that I authorise an update last week. It does this from time to time and I thought nothing of this and so clicked 'yes'; I believe it was a new version including language updates. If SAS.exe really was infected at source, then does this mean that the download site has been hacked & infected. Or is it a false positive?
Anyhow, I did some quick research on the web and decided that as no other symptoms were present I should let Ad-Aware 'clean' SAS.exe and then I uninstalled SAS via the control panel. As I use it very rarely.
I then ran Kasperski Online Scanner this evening. It found Backdoor.Win32.Small.gmi in a trial download of Guitar Pro V5 demo software. This is not detected by MBAM or AVG. Could this be another false positive?
Your guidance much appreciated.
