I have just done a full and thorough virus scan with Avast 5.0.545 and it found 5 trojan files. The files found were 4x vmain.class and 1x vload.class trojans in my AppData/LocalLow files. These files have been moved to the virus chest and I have re scanned the AppData files where they were found and nothing is being found now. Should I delete these files from the Virus chest or does it not matter if they are left there. Also as the scan is not finding any infections now, Do you think I need to do any extra cleaning etc to fully make sure these dirty little b***ers have gone. Many Thanks in Advance for any help or advice you can offer me. James

Hi James Gunn :)

A couple things I would recommend.
1. Leave them in the vault till you are sure that they are not false items and needed for programs.
2. Visit our malware forum and run through the self help portion.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools
