SubSeven Trojan Virus ???
I frequently use a program called GMAX by TurboSquid which is distributed by Microsoft on their Flight Simulator X Acceleration Pack, for the purpose of constructing flight simulation scenery. Recently (and since going to Windows 7 operating system) I am getting intermittent and all to frequent Runtime error 216 at (address). Only by performing a full viral scan with ZA Extreme and SuperAntiSpyware Pro can I manage to get past the 216 error. Per Microsoft, there is the possibility that I have SubSeven Trojan Virus.
Questions here are, why doesn't ZA Extreme capture this and eradicate it if it is a trojan? And, just how do I get rid of the problem?
I have, and have run, not only ZA Extreme and Super AntiSpyware Pro but also PC Tune-Up. So far, nobody is eradicating this issue. Is it a false positive? If so, why does it prevent GMAX from starting, until I do another full system scan - which never shows SubSeven?
Help would be appreciated, this is getting old. :(
Re: SubSeven Trojan Virus ???
Sounds like a false positive, that virus is years old (9 - 10 years old) and likely not to work on modern OSs... check the malware section in the forum for standard procedure to check for malware. If after all those checks you are clean it means you are.... clean :)
