Last night I was in the middle of a yahoo literati game that I was winning the crap out of and all of a sudden I got a norton alert that my computer was infected with a Downloader Trojan called dsound3dd.dll.

Well I forfeited my game and restarted in safe mode immediately and began running my virus software. Norton found it and was unable to fix or quarantine the file, so I tried stopzilla and that didn't even catch it.

I manually moved the file into my trash but I didn't delete it because it was late by the time I was finished running all the scans.
I wanted to find out what the file actually was before I totally got rid of it, a site I was just looking at said it was a malware downloader.

My question is... Is just deleting this file going to do the trick? Can it do any harm from in my recycle bin?

And also, what's the best firewall for keeping this stuff off my computer in the first place? I seem to be having an ass-load of problems like this in the past month.

You do know that if you just deleted it to the recycle bin its still there. And it will continue to have problems. You could have atleast SHIFT + DEL it. :thumbsup: Or Shredded it, then ran unlocker on the file ;).

Im just saying, if you did that, then your still infected.
