jfidae.exe skintrim virus

January 20, 2011 at 02:56:11
Specs: Windows vista 32 bits
I installed avg anti virus free 2011 and moments after scanning my computer the programm prompted jfidae.exe as a threat
At the same time i was running spybot search and destroy and its teatimer; teatimer was also prompted as a threat
avg also prompted taskmr.exe as a threat
what shoud i do
i removed spybot search and destroy programm in order to see if this is causing the problem
thepath of the first infection:
c users paul appdata local jfidae.exe
other information from avg :: win 32:malob-cx
are these false positives?
thanx in advance for helping

"programm prompted jfidae.exe as a threat"
They are right.
avg also prompted taskmr.exe as a threat
If it is not where it belongs, they are right.
win 32:malob-cx
Google shows that as one of the many Fake antivirus programs.

Let AVG & Spybot do their thing, anything you not sure of, google the EXACT name.

thanx for posting the reply on my questions about the jfidae exe

as the problem was detected on a friend"s computer i will run avg and spybot again on his computer
avg replied to me, via their forum, that the alert about jfidae exe was probably correct and they suggest me to update, run avg again to see if the results are the same or the problem solved

your hint about googling the exact name is also very helpfull
funny that i see now more results as before
however about jfidae exe as search word or item i didnt get many results, only of probably rogue websites that want me to run or install their software and thus most likely installing a real malwareprogramm on the pc

who can you trust today ??

again many thanx for the help and the interesting information i have learned

f yours luke

I updated avg and ran the scans again and also spybot
no threats where discovered so i think the problem has been solved

however i did find the following files remaining on the computer of my friend:

jfidae.dat jfidae_nav.dat

is it alright to remove them?
i suppose so
