A couple of weeks back my AVG Anti-Spyware found and quarantined a Trojan called KillAV.It was found in the following file.
C:\I386\MMSSETUP.CAB/msmsgsin.exe -> Trojan.KillAV : Cleaned with backup (quarantined)
At the time I did a Google search on it and found out that it destroyed audio/video on ones PC. I thought therefore that as it was a Trojan it was pointless leaving it in Quarantine and so I deleted it.
This morning I came across a post on this Trojan in the HiJack This forum and found out that it is in fact a false positive and I should in fact have restored it.
My question is: Is there an easy way to restore the file. Until now I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary with the way my PC runs other than twice in the last couple of weeks when switching my monitor on I found that I had lost the flashing Icon in my sign in screen and couldn't sign in without first rebooting my PC. At that time I used to switch my monitor off at night but since I stopped switching it off and just left it on screensaver it hasn't happened again.
Thanks for any advice offered.
