I keep getting infected with Trojan.AntiMcAfee.B. At least that is what Spyware Doctor is telling me ; four or five times this week. Another 62 infections listed today of the same. And it's always about the same number...62 and once, 45.
I use Firefox almost exclusively because I hate spyware.
I reinstalled my McAfee today because I had really odd statistics listed in the firewall logs. It was saying that the total number of items for this week were the same as for this month. Also, the anti-virus program was doing bizarre things. like telling me there was something in here, but it couldn't remove it. I do system scans for virusues and spyware with the McAfee and it comes up with nothing every time. I had to do a system restore not long ago, too, so I don't know if that is why a lot of this is happening, because after a restore I get a warning message that parts of McAfee Anti-virus are either not installed or installed incorrectly. I finally got fed up with it and re-installed to try to help this.
Everything else seems to be okay, so I really don't know. I don't know where I keep getting that infection from,either, and Spyware Doctor is the only one that seems to find it. I also have Ad-Aware SE and a2 Personal which I alternately use to intermittently check this computer, as per recommendations from people on Dell Forums. What one doesn't catch another might. I obviously don't run them at the same time. I posted a log file w/Tom Coyote's site and it's been looked at, but no response. I suppose that maybe there is nothing to worry about?

I got hold of McAfee because I wound up reinstalling my security suite because of errors and also asked them about this trojan. They said it is a false positive. That explains why it is so frequent. Apparently Spyware Doctor is reporting it as being in my computer, when in fact, it isn't. Thank you for your help, though. :thumbsup:
