    Good day folks...:)
    Prevx full scan found"screenshooterV08" which classified as "high-risk cloaked malware", which it quarantined after reboot(not yet removed), but, on searching, I still found a file of this name(see ss), which I deleted, and it's now in
    recycle bin.
    My questions....If I just empty recycle bin, and remove with Prevx, will that be ok? I'm a little confused here, since I certainly didn't have any file of that name to my knowledge...was it called something else if I downloaded it perhaps?
    Also, I'm wondering why it wasn't found by many deep scans, if, apparantly it might have been there some time? Thanks and cheers :)

    Hi TH and thanks. I've been doing a little searching about this and found references, supposedly to an application of this name at michtatoolsdotgooglecodedotcom, but can't be bothered to research more as I'm happy I'm clean since did few more(including custom) scans, and, anyhow, it was only located in downloads folder and not installed or suchlike. Just a little mysterious how I'm not sure of DLing any ss app, except what I know of... 7Capture, FStone, and MooO. Thank you v much for advice, and if anything else shows up I'll send a log as you suggest.
    Cheers!...:)
