Trojan Horse Crypt.FIC

  1. Hi. Forum newbie - first time poster.

    Bought a new laptop a few weeks back, Sony Vaio, FGN-FW41M running Windows Vista Premium Home. I have AVG version 8.5.387. I got a virus alert last week, "Trojan Horse Crypt.FIC". AVG failed to remove it. I suspected it may be a false alarm but didnt want to take the chance.

    Hence I followed the eight steps. Please advise if it was a false alarm and if not is there any residue infection/malware/spyware on my machine?
