Now I know some may object to this being in the hardware section, but it is related to PC cases, I guess.
Anyway, when I was visiting the Thermaltake USA website, avast! popped up that a threat had been blocked the 'JS:Redirector-KP' trojan to be precise? As it is a large and well established company, this made me dubious...
Has anyone else had the same problem?

Regards,
Dan.

Probably introduced through an unchecked ad.

It happens. I got hit Christmas Eve of 2011 from either Yahoo mail, Newegg, or Tom's with the fakeav trojan. Four hours and a Kaspersky Rescue CD to kill it.

Okay, thanks for your help guys, eased my mind a little. Suppose you can never be too careful, I treat every file like a virus on the Interwebs. At least it was blocked :)

a trojan is the inverse. its a viral infection. a firewall. slash anti-virus. anti-spyware would be the ultimate solution

**a trojan is the inverse. its a viral infection**
Its also a brand of condom in the US, which is why it could be termed protection, you got trolled braw :p
