My wife has a new Acer (less than a year old) Vista laptop running Bitdefender Total Security 2009. It picked up a copy of trojan.generic.4331851. Bitdefender said it could not remove the threat and when I checked the virus listing on their website, it didn't even list that specific trojan.
She located the infected file, moved it to the recycling bin and deleted. Currently running a deep scan again, so far nothing. I personally don't think dumping the file in the bin and deleting is gonna work, sounds too easy. I am thinking that if I reboot this laptop, it will manifest itself again, but I know little about it.
In the Bitdefender Log, the object name path was:
C:\ProgramFiles\EgisTec\MyWinLocker 3\HTCA_SelfExtract.bin=](Embedded EXE o)
Anywho, any suggestions on what I should do next? I am worried to reboot without trying to resolve the issue first.
