In my previous post I wrote about once again dealing with a "Rogueware" caused by a Trojan Horse of some sort. I just want to clarify a couple of things.
This seemed to happen while I was dropping on blogs via Entrecard. I don't know that entrecard or the blog I was dropping on had anything to do with my problems, it's just what I was doing when this happened. I've had this happen 3 times in the last year or so, and at least 2 of those times I was dropping when the problems first showed themselves.
Resident Shield is a valid part of my AVG, but I don't know that what it was displaying (Trojan Horse Dropper.Generic2) was valid. That whole situation, frankly, is very confusing to me.
Things seem to still be stable, so that's good. Basically I booted in safe mode, did a system restore & ran scans. I don't know if this actually fixed anything or if it is just masking the problem. There could be stuff lurking out there that nothing is picking up.
