Hello,
I ran a AVG antivirus scan tuesday and it found a trojan horse PSW.OnlineGames.AJVH in this file C:\hp\drivers\hpiz423\setup\copy\copy.cab and it could not remove it cause it said it was a embedded object so i posted a topic in the malware forum. But today i updated my AVG and did a scan of that file and it did not find anything :) . So i am thinking it was another false alert. So my question is, is that file fine to have on my computer? And should i just ask to have my malware topic closed so i dont waste any of the helpers time because i am not having any problems with my PC?

Thank you for any help :)

Sorry if this is the wrong spot for this question.

Sounds like a false positive to me. Try one of the online AV scanners, just to make sure.

All these scanners require you to use Internet Explorer because they need to install an ActiveX component to run the scan.

Hello Ztruker

Thank you for your help, thats what i wanted to here(the false alert) :).
Just to let you know the day AVG found that trojan i ran 2 online scans, the one Panda active scan 2.0 and the other Kaspersky and both of them found nothing.And i also uploaded the file to one of those sites where they scan the file with all kinds of antivirus scanners and only 2 of them found anything. AVG and norman(norman called it a W32/OnLineGames.AUFD).
So just to make clear you think that it was just a false alert?And if so should i just ask for my malware topic to be closed?(i dont see anything wrong with my PC)

And one other thing if would not mind, do you know what that file does?
Thank you very much for your help :)

From the path it was in it has something to do with an HP product, printer, scanner, All-in-one. I couldn't find anything specific about it on the HP web site though. If you have the installation CD for your HP product(s) you could scan them for copy.* and see what you find.
