Hi everyone

I ran an AVG scan on my computer and found this along with a load of tracking cookies.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Windows Key finder\Patcher\wga-fix.exe
Trojan horse Generic_cAPWX

AVG moved it to the virus vault. Is this all I need to do to protect my computer? If not what should i do?

I am a bit useless when it comes to computers so please make sure any info is idiot proof!?!

Dont know if it is linked but my mothers computer (on vista) crashed completly two days ago, error message
ntoskrn1.exe Status 0xc0000098 windows files missing or corrupt. :thumbsup:

Thanks

Did you, by chance, have trouble validating your Windows OS and tried a patch?
It's a crack used when your OS won't pass the Windows Genuine Advantage test
I would delete it from quarantine and rescan

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
