I have a spyware scan hang on the same file at the same spot every time.
This is a new PC, XP Pro.
I decided to try different spyware scanning programs even though my old pc's Adaware & Spybot seemed to do well for me. I know there are better things out there, so I am auditioning the ZA product (have always used the firewall and liked that).
I set the scanner to do a deep scan on it's first scan of my PC. Twice it has hung on Win32.Trojan.Dropper.VB.MP (at 85% of the scan complete).
I did some research on this and don't really find anything exactly with this name, although many have similar names, such as .VBS
I did some searches for files like "mendoza.exe" (which were listed as Trojan Dropper files on some web sites) with no success. There don't seem to be any unfamiliar services running. At that stage of my scan (85%), the number of detected "spyware" items was 0. Never having used this product, I don't know what I should have expected, but no cookies at that point? Anyway, I am stumped. I'm thinking of trying a few of my old standbys to see if I get the same hit.
One other weird thing - ZA AV monitoring says I have no detectable AV (which is not true - I have AVG running and working great)
