Tryan horse PSW on DVD RW

March 29, 2011 at 01:40:45
Specs: Windows Vista
My AVG Free says there is a virus on one of my photo DVD RW disks. I have taken the disk to 2 photo shops who had no trouble opening it. I have also taken it to a computer shop and they found no virus. What could the problem be then?
Would it be safe to right click and explore the disk or would that allow the virus to enter my computer
The virus is a Troyan Horse PSW.

Millions upon millions of virus's, no way we can know them all, particularly when you give us 2 different names ( Tryan horse PSW & Troyan Horse PSW ) & neither is probably right.

Probably should be Trojan horse PSW

My first choice to do some more checks, is Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Try it in Safe mode.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.
How to see hidden files in Windows
Rename all the .exe files in the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder and try to run it again.
When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.
Download & install.
