I have a Fujitsu Siemens desktop, with Windows Vista Business and AVG popped a window with the same threat as above (kimbalaya) a Trojan Horse Dropper.Generic5.CGOS. On AVG it comes up as:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe
It also shows a registry key referring to this.
What does this trojan do?
AVG does not put it in the Vault and I have already ran Spybot Search&Destroy and MBAM and they don't find it, they come up clean.
Only AVG finds it but does not heal it - instead it tells me that I have to force removal which may crash the computer. Will it really crash the computer if I do? I have searched the net and I have found some sites telling me to work through Safe Mode with Networking and the Run Window but I don't know if it is safe. Others say that someone has to delete the corresponding registry keys.
If I delete Adobe and reinstall it will that delete the trojan too?
I don't know what to do - please please help?
