Hi all...Running Vista Ultimate 64bit, Spysweeper 6.1.0 build 128 and am normally very security conscious but try not to be paranoid. Have owned my laptop for 6 months and never one single trace of spy/mal/adware has ever been detected on a scan. This actually concerned me...normally I at least get some cookies detected. Computer has been acting a little squirrelly lately and yesterday, while in the middle of doing nothing, it just got a blue screen and crashed. I recovered it no problem through a reboot, but just for grins I downloaded and installed Adaware (free) version 8.1.1, updated definitions and ran a sweep. It detected, and then quarantined "Win32.Trojan.Agent" -- Here's a screenshot:http://screencast.com/t/OLTHRT4LVkvl
My question is, is this a false positive? I tried to research what win32.Trojan.Agent was and that's when I saw a lot of activity on various forums about this thing being a false positive a lot and thought I'd get some other opinions.
Note to admin: that's how I found this forum...and I registered because your replies seemed very user- and satisfaction-driven, so kudos! :-)
