[quote=jeff53404;2148187]You could search on your computer for the word quarantine and you should get the path for the folder. However, if you’re using McAfee, the folder is probably hidden. I have a quarantine folder with files in it and I trust my AV software to keep it there.
FWIW: My pathname is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\VirusScan[/quote]
Thanks so much for your response. When A-Squared detected the trojan, I used the option to place it in “Quarantine”, so when I ran my AV scan, it was not found. As long as it’s in that folder, there are no worries, right?
Yes, that’s what I figured. Googling reveals the trojan also attaches itself to AnyDVD and other programs as well.
I DID remove it (placed it in A-Squared’s quarantine folder) and I’ll continue to do regular deep scans just in case. Thanks so much for the response and your suggestions.
Thanks for the suggestion, GJ. I really appreciate everyone’s concern and responses (love that about this site) and I will certainly look into malwarebites. Haven’t a clue how I picked up this trojan/virus thingy, or why it came up connected to DVD Shrink (one of my favorite programs), but I think I’m okay as long as it’s in the quarantine folder.
