    After NOD32's trial period was expired I give Avast home edition 4.5 a try and after fully scanning Avast found some nasty stuff that NOD32 had missed.

    Win32:Trojan-gen. {Other}" has been found in "D:\Cache\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\S12B0DQ3\dst_abi[1].exe" file.

    I've tried to searching its information but it comes with nothing so I have no idea about it and it seems that only Avast uses this name to identify viruses.

    Where can I find the information about a virus called Win32:Trojan-gen.

    Thanks

    Can you please zip the file and send it to samples@nod32.com when this has been done you can empty yout Temp Files by doing the following:

    Open up Internet Explorer.

    Click on Tools.

    Internet Options.

    General TAB.

    Temporary Internet Files.

    Delete Files.

    Delete All Offline Content.


    This will delete what has been found.

    Cheers

    Yes,these are generic signatures. You cannot name generic signatures if they are not created for specific family.
