A neighbor called and said his Ad-aware SE daily scan picked up
a Trojan and gave him the option of what to do with it. He selected
"clear" and it's gone.
To clear this up for me, I didn't know Ad-aware would pick up Trojans,
and if so it had to have been missed by his AVG, Defender etc.
I can't get the name of the Trojan as he can't access the clear option.
Does this sound right?
