Hi, i was on my computer when a message came up saying, Threat Detected,when i checked it,it said it found a "Trojan Horse Downloader Agent 11.S" in C:\\Windows\System\A331.EXE.I tried to heal it using my antivirus software, but no luck, i was told by many to delete the whole file, but its in a windows system file, that says if you tamper with them, you could mess up your computer. And even when i looked for the folder, its not in the windows system folder, so not only can i not delete it, i cant find it, and i dont know what to do.i dont know if that is even important, and if it is not, i would like to know where to find it, and how i can delete it, if anyone knows anything about this,i would greatly appreciate some guiding advice.thanks alot.

Install Super Antispyware. Run in safe mode and let it quarantine or remove whatever it finds.

Run an online scan using Bit Defender and let it quarantine whatever it finds.

If you have reason to believe you are still infected, post a Hijack This log in the proper forum by following the instructions in the link below.

What program gave you the alert?

That is good news. If you haven't run Bit Defender I would do that, too. Especially if Super Antispyware found malware other than cookies! No one program will get rid of todays malware. You can always post a log as suggested in the first post.
