Specs: Windows Vista, 2.00GB
AVG says I have Trojan Horse Generic 22BYKS in C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YServer.

I saw recommendation given to it-illiterate (May 10,2011. Should I follow that? I am totally IT-illiterate and am surprised that I even thought to Goggle this. Help please.

Not sure if it matters, but I seldom access Yahoo and do not use the Messenger, but maybe that doesn't matter if I have a Yahoo email account?

Thanks, LT

Here is what I referred to. Am wondering if I should take lap top to a computer shop? Seems like there are so many viruses and fake viruses now. I feel overwhelmed and not sure if I should even use pc while this Trojoan virus is in it.
Help please.
