My anti virus programs say I'm clean-but am I really infected?

  1. Hi, I'm new here. I've been reading a lot on your forum and followed the advice which I found to be very helpful against viruses.

    For antivirus I use AVG Pro, Spybot SD and Ad-aware Professional. I also have Spyware Blaster installed on my comp and for firewall-Zone Alarm Pro. All three progs are updated and working.

    I battled with a few trojans recently though (backdoor) and also a worm called I/ Bagle which AVG promptly sent to the virus vault. Since then I have run several scans and all of them say I'm clean. I still have one last doubt though when I ran HJT. I don't know what those "file missing" entries mean. Are they viruses or safe? Could you please take a look at my HJT log? Here it is:




    THANKS in advance!:confused:

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your HJT log is clean as a whistle.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Edit: BTW, the file missing entries are perfectly safe and are nothing to worry about.
