Tags: Security Malware Apps Last response: January 27, 2012 9:49 PM in Applications Share Merovius March 14, 2010 5:12:57 PM Just upgradded to Win 7 yesterday, installed a few apps and drivers bbut nothing major so far. Anyway I ran Malware bytes and AVG and I found 2 viruses One was a Logitech SetPoint trojan and the other was a Samssung Display Hijack Malware bytes seemed to remove the display hijack well enough but Im not quite sure that AVG was able to dispose of the Trojan properly Ive rescanned and the viruses appear to have been removed but tbh I dont trust that.

If the scan comes up clean there, you should be fine. | Report abuse Matan Eldan Security Expert March 15, 2010 4:24:34 PM +1 to "aford10". And don't forget to make sure that your Malware bytes and AVG are updated.

If so I think the guys above are probably right. If you are very worried then you might as well just reinstall as you have nothing on it and it will give you peace of mind. That being said - you would be better learning how to deal with things now as later on when you have 300GB of software installed you won't want to be reinstalling windows unless absolutely necessary. | Report abuse SR-71 Blackbird Security Authority March 17, 2010 9:13:47 PM as long as you are not installing pirated or cracked software you are fine!if you are that's what happens when you don't purchase legit software. if your software is legit they are false positives! | Report abuse Mousemonkey January 27, 2012 9:49:20 PM Best answer selected by mousemonkey. | Report abuse Mousemonkey January 27, 2012 9:49:23 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Applications>Should I just reinstall?> Related ressources: ForumSimple and Free Guide to Removing Malware ForumShould I do a fresh install of OS or just load chipset drivers?
