AVG & Downloader.Small.33.BS Virus

by lyrical56 / February 10, 2007 10:47 AM PST

I've followed all the recommendations made here thank goodness! All of a sudden this evening, AVG popped up with this virus! I quarantined it and Googled and checked the AVG site, but there is no information available that explains it....

How did I get it? and what is it? This is the very first time this has ever happened and I'm kind of alarmed, not thinking I've been to any sites or opened any email that was suspicious. Anyone know what this is? Thanks.
