Yesterday I downloaded this: Infected Executable File Removed.
My Panda antivirus didn't see anything wrong with it, but it is some sort of spyware or trojan. Since I ran it last night, my IE opens up sometimes with an IQ test page '=)
Today I ran a quick scan with Windows Defender and it found a Win32/Renos.MQ (more info here -> http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Threat/Encyclopedia/Entry.aspx?name=TrojanDownloader:Win32/Renos.MQ&threatid=152583)
It gave me the option to remove it, so I did. It took several minutes... And, how lovely, while it was doing it, my antivirus said "Virus neutralized!" and when I checked it, xxxxxxxx which was INSIDE Windows Defender's LocalCopy folder - I assume Panda just got in the way of Defender's task.
After it finished, the dangerous file that Defender wanted to send to Microsoft was dangerous link removed
Now I ran another quick scan on Defender and it didn't find anything. Still, I would like to double check. I remember using Hijack This a few years ago and all... Does anybody have any suggestions? I arrived in this forum through this topic, very relevant to my problem -> http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread84164.html
Thanks a lot for your attention!
