Hi :flowers:

Long time since I've been here !

Well , Anyway , I went back to XP recently because Vista didn't a program I need to run.
I missed the Vista look :thumbsup: So my friend recommended that I install Vista Inspirat 9
I took his advice and when the installer started it gave me an error about "C:\WINDOWS\system32\scrnrdr.exe''
Then AVG (9.0 - Updated) popped up with a trojan , not sure which though :S in the file Inspirat was trying to reach.
I moved it the Virus Vault and looked up the virus on another PC. Apparantly it is a False Positive,
So I sent the file to AVG and they gave me this result back in an email;

This e-mail is an auto-response message. Please do not reply.

AVG Research Lab has analyzed the file(s) you have sent from your AVG Virus Vault. Below you can find the results for each file. The final verdict on the file is either a correct detection or a false positive detection.

Further information about the verdicts are available at our website:

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\scrnrdr.exe" - detection is correct

Best regards,

Should I do a scan to see if it is fully gone ?
I don't mind posting logs or uploading files if it helps :trumpet:
Just want my PC back to normal :inlove:
And are there any other steps I should take ?

Thanks In Advance,
Jamie Lawther

Use Jottiscan or virustotal to scan certain files
A little more complete
If you wish to discuss this problem further, I suggest you post in our Am I Infected forum

Fixed , Thanks ;)

I installed Avira AntiVir and it found the infection.

Are there any other anti spyware/malware with Memory Resident.. Spyware Blaster seems to be good.. but I prefer one running in the notification area so I can see whats happening lol

I know about MBAM , And might purchase it soon, But untill then , Are there any others ??

Once again
