(SOLVED) How to remove this trojan? Is it really a trojan or something else?

3 posts in this topic

 Every time I run the scan I keep getting this threat of a trojan and it won't remove from my computer. I am not sure what it wrong and I have also tried other anti virus programs and it does not show up. Does this mean it is a false positive or is there really a trojan on my system?

 

Trojan.Agent/Gen-Generic
C:\USERS\TAMMIE\APPDATA\ROAMING\RAINMAKER SOFTWARE GROUP LLC.?\PRO PC CLEANER 2.5.6\INSTALL\A5A8ADA\SPLASH.EXE

Hi tvac3,

 

It's not a Trojan so there is no need to worry in that respect, however, Pro PC Cleaner is essentially a PUP ( potentially unwanted program ) it can also be classed as Scareware due to the way it works ( if at all ).

 

The fact that it's in the Roaming folder would suggest it's a left over remnant. You can navigate to that folder by typing 

C:\users\tammie\appdata\roaming\

 

You should see the program listed where you can delete the entire Rainmaker folder.

Tvac3,

 

We changed this detection to show as a PUP instead of a Trojan.  This change will go live when we publish definitions update 11805 later today.

 

 

Thanks for the report.
