My daughter rang me after she tried to plug in her new mobile dongle into her laptop - Avira flagged up a trojan -, sorry don';t have details and wouldn't let the software install. I got her to do various scans with Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, everything came up clean, so in the end I got her to uninstall Avira Free and install Bitdefender.

Lo and behold I plug in a brand new camera tonight into my desktop and get the same problem - Tr/Crypt.XPACK.Gen Trojan - I've also run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware scans and both clean. I also use Avira free.

Daughter's is a laptop running Win XP

Mines a desktop running Win 7

her's could have something on it - but am pretty sure mine doesn't, as I know this pc inside out, what are the chances of Avira flagging up false positives on two separate computers?
