    Hi Law93, NOD32 has already dealt with it and Quarantined the file.

    Cheers :D

    Please check your logs, I would suggest the file has in fact been deleted, hence the use of Quarantine as a safety factor.

    Cheers :D

    it says the program was started by svcman.exe, but it just says it has been quaratined, not deleted....

    and its supposedly to be a REG/Zapchast trojan...could it be the dock i'm using?

    Quarantines means :
    1.Create a safe encrupted copy of the inftected file
    2.Place the copy to the NOD32's Quarantine
    3.Delete the infected file from the original sourse

    So , as Blackspear said , you are safe

    ok, so Nod32 has already deleted the file but has made a copy of it that isn't a virus and placed it in its quarantine?

    Only files flagged as infected are quarantined. However, you can basicly quarantine any file manually.

    the only thing is that the file that is infected is svcmain.exe
    a friend of mine was telling me thats a system file, which isn't good to be deleted...

    Do not delete anything manually, always let NOD32 handle these choices for you, it has in this case, and a further scan will confirm your system is clean.

    Cheers :D
