  1. Yesterday I opened a program which supposedly contains the trojan Win32/Malum.AMQU. I used virustotal.com to scan the file and it gave me the following results:

    I was still a little worried so I deleted the program and proceeded with the preliminary removal instructions. Attached are my log files. AVG antispyware, mcafee security center, adaware, spybot, and various other scanners found nothing.
    Is there anything I should be worried about or are there no problems? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).


    Close control panel.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\Program Files\Viewpoint<Delete the entire folder.
    C:\DOCUME~1\CHRIST~1\APPLIC~1\Viewpoint<Delete the entire folder.

    Reboot into normal mode.

    Other than the above, your system looks clean.

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
