    I have found the trojan PSW.Banker.44.A embedded in SpySubtract.exe. I have often suspected some of these companies of cleaning all but their own filth from our systems, but this is the first time I've caught one live. I am using AVG 7.0 plus Firewall (beta) to keep my system bug free. AVG automatically deleted the file. I am reluctant to reinstall the program.

    This might be a false positive, try scanning the file at these two sites: http://virusscan.jotti.org/ & http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html. They both use multiple scanning-engines. :)

    I apreciate the replies. However, AVG automatically deleted the file; and I am understandably reluctant to reinstall the program. It's taken me a long time to find out what's been slowning down my machine. Now that it's running smoothly again... Of course, you are free to d/l the latest trial version of SpySubtract and scan it for yourself. I'd be interested in the results.

    If you still want to test it out just do this.

    1. Shutdown AVG or disable the virus monitor

    2. Go to Jotti

    3. Load the file

    4. See if any thing is detected, If it is then delete.

    5. Load back up AVG or enable virus monitor again
