I got this thing called a trojan horse downloader when i downloaded some photoshop brushes.
It was inside a rar, which i extracted. When i extracted it, there was a folder with the good stuff inside. Outside it there was a thing called "run" which i didn't run. I didn't run anything. But just after i extracted it, an AVG detection thing popped up. I did a virus scan, which found the downloader as that "run" thing. I deleted the archive, the folder and the run and emptied my recycle bin. I also removed the archive from my tempory internet files. With that "thing" be gone?

Also can someone tell me what the differance between a trojan horse and a trojan horse downloader?

Edit: It seems to be gone. The trojan downloader was: Zlob.dc

Trojans FAQs.

Did you rescan with your anti-virus in "SAFE MODE" to confirm its gone?

If your running Win XP/2000, I also suggest you download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions and read the User Manual.
