Hello and hopefully someone can help. I have spent some time searching and cant find the answer.
 
I ran AVG and scanned whole system. 4 Trojan Horses were found.
1 was a false positive
1 was secured
and 2 said take action, couldnt remove(something like that)(still have report result)
 
Now I update avg, rescan whole computer 2 times and nothing is found.
I scaned each file seperatly and it said pass.
 
Where the other 2 trojans removed or not being detected now?
They were called Trojan Horse Generic32.EGL
 
Please help me understand the result and what to do
 
these were the two results in question
"";"Trojan horse Generic32.EGL, C:\Windows\Installer\7883.msi";"Infected"
"";"Trojan horse Generic32.EGL, C:\ProgramData\{E91883C8-8CDC-46A4-A45F-CB40EB82ED60}\HP Support Assistant.msi";"Infected"

I just addressed the very same issue on another board.

Definitely false positives as it happens with AVG too often.
