    I scanned my laptop yesterday with Kaspersky IS AVAST AVG and CUREIT and all said clean but SAS and MBAM and PREVEX say i have a system 32.exe trojan
    .All were fully updated and i don.t know what to do now. Can someone give a link to find a cleanning tool for this or should i just follow the SAS directions . Will cleaning do aby harm to the system/?
    thanks for the help

    If you could post the full name of the trojan it may reveal more.
    Once you have browsed to and located the file concerned, a right click on it to look at the properties may indicate more about it, too.
    Meantime, upload it to one of the online scanners (links below) to get a few more opinions.

    No i have not installed them at the same time but one after the other just to scan. I did upload the files to VIRUS TOTAL and they were all clean. Afterwards MBAM found some backdors (3) and the rest of the scanners did not find anything.Right now i am running AVG paid.o_O o_O o_O o_O

    Gery, you might have 'got' something awhile ago, say before you've improved your security setup.

    Take a snapshot or restore point, and then let prevx or SAS/MBAM clean the file. See how your system runs afterwards. There might be no negative impacts.

    Hi,

    It may be an idea to zip up the file, password protect it and send it to AVG. As you have the paid edition hopefully they will reply to you whether the file is clean or not.

    Cheers

    this forum is biased!
    its known that mbam and prevx do have some FP's, i dont know if this is the same with SAS.
