    Hi!

    Just downloaded the latest dat (253) and after running it discovered the following:-

    Virus
    Trojan horse BackDoor.Fraggle

    is found in file

    D:\Oxford Dictionary10th Ed\Uninstal.exe


    Is it possible that the uninstal.exe file in my Concise Oxford Dictionary 10th Ed be a trojan?


    Thanks

    How long has it been on your computer? :D

    I would not call my trojan Uninstall but something that lured people into running it. My guess is f/p.

    Hi Pieter_Arntz!

    Concise Oxford Dictionary software has been on my system for sometime now and NAV2003 Pro & the anti-virus in Ontrack's Fix-It doesn't detect it.

    You're right to say that this is a F/P :D

    Thanks

    You could submit it to the KAV scan: http://antivirus.mafia.ru/ to get a fourth opinion, but I guess it's wiser to inform AVG.

    Regards,
