I just downloaded CureIt because I have a yahoo/google redirect virus. Nothing is detecting it to remove it so far. I have used MBAB and Avira free plus used Super antispyware. All of these softwares I have used for years now but none helped so I installed CureIt and some other antivirus program today. While running cureit in the express mode it caught nothing so I am doing a completer scan. Now it is saying 137 files of my Avira antivirus software is infected with either trojans or backdoors. What the heck??? Is this a false positive where one antivirus is competing with another? I decided not to have any of these files removed because I worried that cureit was falsely targeting a program that has worked fine for me just didn't do what I needed in this instance.
Can someone tell me if an antivirus software can actually become infected by the very trojans and backdoors it is meant to guard and remove???
Is CureIt being overly suspicious and naming things in Avira as trojans and backdoors that are actually viable components of the software? I need to know if I should be worried or not.
Thanks for your help...Goldenarrow
