    Default Virus or False Positives??

    Good evening,

    Tonight I was running a Lavasoft Ad-Aware 2008 scan after just downloading, installing and updating the new ZAISS version released today.

    While Ad-Aware 2008 was scanning ZA found and quarantined two 'viruses'.

    Both were called: Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Agent.vur

    One had a path of: C:\WINDOWS\unins000.exe and the other

    C:\Program Files\SpywareBlaster\unins000.exe

    Are these two findings for real or just false positives?

    Thanks and regards,


    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    My scan ran after the update and found trojan-downloader.win32.agent.vur in 3 places - two system restore folders and an unins000.exe file.
    is it a
    virus or false positive?
    What wll happen if I delete the files?

    I have the same problem. It showed after the patch. The file is unins000.exe

    It is located in two places, both which have to do with the same program (GIMP). IF this is a false positive, how can we correct it?

    Suggest you start by uploading the potentially "false positive" files to
    VirusTotal is a free service which analyzes suspicious files against 32 anti-virus engines. You'll get a fast answer as to whether these are all false positives.

    If the files turn out to be false positives please report them:

    Anti-virus false positive:
    Send the file in a password protected zip to Subject: False Positive
    Be sure to include the password in your e-mail.

    Anti-spyware false positive:

    Should these turn out to be false positives, by reporting them you help yourself and other users.

    Hi everyone,
    I checked both of mine with Jotti's Malware Scan and both came up clean.

    Well, I saw this Trojan-Downloader virus in the ZA scan results, and deleted it as ZA advised. Silly me. I've now lost all the email that was in my Thunderbird inbox. I think the virus was probably in some spam message, which I could have deleted manually.

    Is there any way to undelete an infected file once it's deleted? Or have I lost my email forever?
