    avg anti-spyware shows trojan.cardst.
    I know which site it comes from,but can not find any info on this.
    have run other scanners and they do not pick this up.
    have visited this site for over a year and this trojan has never shown untill I started using avg.
    Is this probably a fp.

    In windows explorer, go to Tools> Folder Option> Check Show Hidden files and Folders and Apply.
    Then go to

    http://www.virustotal.com/

    Click choose, browse and select the .htm file, the click send file and wait for results. It miht be just a false positive. U can send these files to AVG support.
    Other simple way is to just clean ur browser cache and get rid of them.

    U can try with InterntExplorer.
    Or Just empty ur browser cache and it will go watsoever.
    U can also use CCleaner.

    Delete and purge all email not wanted ( i would delete all)..this is usually gotten through fake mail asking for your credit card info r a site u visited who wants your info..check your credit card billing and make sure it's correct..some online chat rooms who require plastic may set in temp files..it's not a high risk..
