    Hello,
    I had done a full computer scan and ESET has founded (4) probably agent trojans:

    see the photo

    The question is ..
    Why the action selection of the (first and second) agents was postponed until scan completion, and one of the (third and fourth) prompted me to select the action during the scan and was not postponed until scan completion?
    Thanks for your care ..

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say it's because they are marked as "potentially unwanted" and not real threats? In v4 PUApps require user interaction.

    If you want to test follow these steps http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN141 and explain in the email your question that you want to know if the 2 files are PUA and if so, why they are badly named. (Probably because they appear to be heuristic detections)

    Another solution is there might be a problem with the drive the files are on? Maybe it failed to remove them automatically?

    They are not badly named, it is arabic language.
