    I appear to have two trojans in my System32 folder.

    The free version of Kaspersky, Active Virus Shield, detected
    one of them at "Xorpix.m". Bitdefender 8, their free version,
    missed it.

    Bitdefender 8 detected the other one as "Worm.Glowa.AR".
    Kaspersk missed this though.

    Antivir, Comodo, Clam, Spyware Terminator, Super Antispyware,
    Asquared and Ewido missed both totally.

    I'm not sure if they were false alarms though.

    Don't know if they are FP's or not:

    Best to assume they are real parasites.

    You could post a HJT log but these don't get done here anymore I was told.

    Over at Techguy in their security forum they do provide HJT service.

    The other idea, would be get BitDefender 10 on trial and see what it finds!

    Hi,
    I would suggest using additional anti-malware software like Spybot or Ad-Aware to verify these trojans and use this software to clean them.
    Regards...

    Hi VahlefeldD, sorry to say, the age of spybot and adaware is gone.

    SuperAntispyware free &
    AVG antispyware free

    It wil be best to upload them to virus total and jotti.

    Hi aigle:

    Those two are sure oldies. I still use them once every 3 months or so as "infrequent"on demand scanners.

    Am I am wasting my time doing even that? I think they still have updates so they aren't completely static!

    In theory anyway, the thesis that they are over the hill is saying they will never find a single parasite that more current tools routinely prevent or detect. (I think that is what it means)

    Moderator, this my the hill stuff may be off thread so if you need to move this post elsewhere please do...

    Thanks for the help, everyone.

    I sent my files to Virus Total and many of the scanners
    indicate they are indeed trojans or worms. The scan
    results are attached.

    I also sent them to Virus Buster. They were kind enough
    to check them out for me. They confirmed the "Xorpix.m"
    as "Trojan.PR.Xorpix.BR". However, they said they couldn't
    analyze the "Worm.Glowa.Ar" file as it was damaged.

    ~Online virus scan results removed. Send any samples to the respective antivirus vendors....Bubba~

    Not at all, I don't disagree. What I am wondering is my own use of them as infequent on demand tools. Just want to avoid wasting time.

    I already use active SS and BD10.
