Well I was using my P2P program and downloaded a game. Stupid me, right? yes. Very. Very. Very stupid.
I should have learned my lesson by now.

Anyways. It was a bittorrent file...and once it completely finished transferring, my AVG popped up with 3 possible Trojan threats.
The exact name it gave me was "Trojan horse Dropper.Small.29.BU"

I want to stress though that I DID NOT click on the game file from the torrent. I didn't even click on the folder. I TOUCHED NOTHING.
All I did was immediately click "remove infections" on AVG. One of the three was deleted, but the other two said "object inaccessible."

So from there..I deleted my P2P program..the bit torrent file..and then of course the folder with the "game" in it. And removed them all from my recycle bin.
I then went back to AVG to try and delete the two once more, but it's still saying "Object inaccessible."

My computer isn't acting weird..I'm scared to restart though :thumbsup:

What are my chances that I'm infected since I didn't even touch the files? I immediately deleted them. NOTHING was opened.

Give me good news guys..please. lol

Well after deleting all the files that could have been associated with the torrent..
I ran my AVG again and it's showing zero infections.

Is that a sure bet though? I'm still pretty scared..because earlier it said "object inaccessible."

It's calming to see "0 infections found."

But I'm still worried.

Can anyone help me out?

thanks a bunch.
