Trojan Horse Downloader in Virus Vault

May 29, 2009 at 21:34:20
Specs: Windows XP
I have a pc running windows xp home, with the free avg software on it. I've got 3 infections of the Trojan Horse Downloader Generic 8.AIAT in the virus vault right now. According to the scan history, all three were located and healed, then placed in the virus vault.

The question is this... because of where the infections are located-the files-I'm leery about deleting the files entirely. The infected files are

\Documents and Settings\ name...\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\54\34677836-2d..



If I delete these from the virus vault-which is suppost to delete them entirely from my computer-will I mess up my computer, like Windows or Java? Is it safe to delete them?

Another question... since avg says its healed the infections, do I need to do anything else?

Its already in vault so if you computer is working ok now it will continue to work same way if you delete it from there. Its better to scan you computer with second antivirus to make sure all the infected files got removed. Try to scan your pc with bitdefender/eset online scanner.
