    Anyone else with updated Pest Patrol find this possible False Postive?

    Pest= Unknown Trojan, Pest Info= Key logger, Found in= C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\kernel.avc

    I found it after getting recent PP updates and then doing a full system scan. I also did scans with Spybot, Ad-aware, SpySweeper, Spycop, A2, NAV and Kaspersky online file scan and no problems were found.

    Its in a temp folder, Empty your temp files. I dont worry to much about stuff in temp folders cuase they are temp files and will be deleted and uneeded. But I do look sometimes but i keep my temp folders clean. So I wouldnt worry. I did a search for that file didnt find much some av hits but like I siad I wouldnt worry.

    Exactly the same here. The PP Log File shows ...... temp\glb1a2b.exe","Unknown Trojan." When I looked at the properties of this file I found that it was deposited on my comp at exactly the same time as the new definitions were downloaded. As stated above, a reboot got rid of it. The file was 150kb in size.

    Lately, PP has given off quite a few false positives in respect of spyware/adware but this is the first time, to my knowledge, that it has identified what was supposed to be a Trojan, in a file which it created itself.

    I no longer have PP Memory Check running as the programme is just proving too unreliable, along with quite a few others in the anti spyware category that I could mention.

    Looks like the FP was removed with todays Pest Patrol update. So i'll give them credit for moving fast to remove that FP.
