Hi all,

Today this evening, I had a warning from Avast Antivirus. It said i had
an infection on system/notepad.exe
it was a trojan, i can't say which one, but i've looked it up on google
and it didn't have any matches.

But the weird thing is, i try to help a lot of people with PC problems,
i've already 15 phone calls about the same problem.

Maybe it just is Avast who has written a wron Virus Definition list.

Many Greetings
Hannes (Belgium)

Maybe it is a justified declaration !


Please submit a sample to Virus Total --
http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html
The submission will then be tested against many different AV vendor's scanners.
That will give you an idea what it is and who recognizes it.  In addition,
unless told
otherwise, Virus Total will provide the sample to all participating vendors.

You can also submit a suspect, one at a time, via the following email URL...
mailto:scan@virustotal.com?subject=SCAN

When you get the report, please post back the exact results.

False Positive; Germans were affected, too; an update of the virus
definitions will fix this issue.
