Win32:Trojan-gen (Yes or NO)

by private_pass / January 21, 2006 12:40 AM PST

I have a HP Pavilion around two weeks old have been running avast, zone alarm, ad aware SE and MS antispyware since day one. Today avast picked up two Infected files on my D drive, mind you this is the HP recovery drive. So I moved them to the virus chest as suggested, so then I thought I would scan the recovery dvd?s that I had to make when I first setup the computer and was never connected to the internet. The scan found the same two files. Question are these really Trojan?s? If so did HP ship the system with these on them? or can I ignore this and move those files back from the virus chest to the D drive.
Thanks for your replies

Just thought I would let everyone know, I contacted HP and here is there reply. (I have checked the above mentioned files and found that they are not the virus related files. These files are system related files.)
I thought that's what it might be since it never picked up anything on my C drive, only on D and my recovery DVD's that I made
