    Default Virus quarantined, but is it dangerous?? (no Web record of it)

    Today, ZA AV alerted me that Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Agent.blk found in ImgBurn.exe.
    Do I need to delete ImgBurn, or can I still restore it and use it?
    Are any images I've burned in the past few days at risk?
    I need to learn a bit about this, so I thank you for your help.

    I had a similar but different virus identified in Imgburn
    <blockquote>not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.Agent.bn </blockquote>
    This was similarly quarantined, but appears to have no other impact.
    Fortunately I've not burned anything with ImgBurn since I last updated the software.
    The ZA link lacked any tangible detail to help me understand the nature of the threat.
    OS Windows XP Home with SP2 and latest patchesProduct Name ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite v 7.0.377.000, antivirus engine version 3
    I'm wondring if this is an Imgburn problem, a mirror problem or
    a false positive.
    So far everything else on my PC checks clean.

    Does it give the exact path of offending file - it's possible false positive.

    In my case the path was C:\Program Files\ImgBurn\ImgBurn.exe with a duplicate in a restore directory.
    Both were quarantined and appear to have done so successfully.
    I did have a system crash around this time though.
    You also want to know jehlers experience was as well.

    The path is a legit path witha legit file for a legit program, but it could be infected still.We had two false positives for Yahoo DLL files with the KAV6 anti-virus in a week so it could be a false alarm too.

    Thanks Jerusalem,
    I freed the file from quarantine and it now scans clean.

    In my case, too, the path was C:\Program Files\ImgBurn\ImgBurn.exe.
    And in my case, too, the program crashed.
    (I had two open instances of imgburn.exe, and I closedthe one not in progress, and the system crashed to reboot.)
    I also restored, and it's clean.

    Thanks to all FPs, and users! ~je
