    Re: Trojan Hunter Finds Kaspersky's Installation Of Trojan On My Computer

    I ran several anti-malware programs on my son-in-law's computer. In the Panda program, Avast found a trojan. I'm sorry that I don't remember the name, except that it begins with a Q. It could be a false positive too.

    Denise,

    Many security programs can generate false alerts for a number of reasons. The best recourse , if possible, is to consult the vendor of the program generating the alert.

    Occasionally, "false" alerts will involve a "potentially dangerous" application which often simply reflect some of the actions security programs can exercise in performing their function.

    it is false positive, it says in avast site, panda does not encrypt their detection, so false positive is generated.

    Maybe this helps to explain things?
