I run AVG Free every day and yesterday (after months of trouble free scanning) it picked up 5 Trojan horse Generic 12.BUXN infections, all sitting in Musicmatch files. It healed and moved them to the Virus Vault.

Firstly, I have Googled this Trojan to see what its nature is but my searches don't give any results for that specific name, there are other ThG 12. infections but with different extensions. Does anyone know anything about this one with the extension .BUXN?

Secondly, is it enough that it is - according to AVG - healed and in the Virus Vault or should I take further steps to remove it? If so how?

cheers in advance for any help :thumbsup:

The virus vault is like a holding cell. As long as your computer runs OK with no issues for a while then it's OK to delete them

Thanks for that, I'm never sure if I should remove them or not or if there still might be traces of them lurking in my system somewhere.

I can't believe it can be that easy to isolate and remove them. :thumbsup:

Just let us know if anything acts strange and we can run some scans
