    Hi

    During a regular scan last night, AVG detected the above spyware within msmsgsin.exe in the messenger folder.

    The above file was then scanned with AdAware, A Squared, Outpost's Anti-Spyware and NOD, they all said the file is clean.

    But to be on the safe side, I deleted the file and did a system scan using AVG. It came back clean.

    I then copied the same msmsgsin.exe file from another PC which AVG said is clean back to the messenger folder, thinking everything is now OK, but as soon as I scan the folder using AVG, the alert comes on saying Trojen.KillAV have been detected...

    What should I do, at the moment, I have put the file in the exception list in AVG, but I don't think it's the best way to go about it!!
