I upgraded my SpywareBlaster yesterday. As I was just shutting down my computer, I got a small box that said, very quickly, something about download trojan and spywareblaster. I restarted the computer and am currently scanning w/avg and superantispyware. AVg came up with 1 threat Trojan Horse Dropper.agent IPC, in Program Files, Spywareblaster. Do I need to send in a HijackThis Log?
I have been so careful as to not download anything and to not open any attachments. And to top it off, I finally got my husband to install antispyware in his computer yesterday, so that means he is also proably infected. We downloaded SpywareBlaster from MajorGeeks.com.

AVG just told me the threat was deleted. Should I now get rid of the SpywareBlaster I have on my computer?

Please disregard previous questions. I just read on Wilders Security Forums that this was a false positive and they are working on fixing this.
