Traces=dangerous?

Recommended Posts

I recently had a run in with Zango infection but I cleaned it by using some other software yet when I ran superantispyware today it found 12 traces possibly from Zango which I removed, what I want to know is are these traces able to activate and do damage or are they just left overs that are inactive?

ps the scan only found traces (files) no running processes or registry entries, any help would be appreciated

Traces typically are not harmful - we clean them just so they are no longer on your system. You should be fine.

Are traces capable of sending information out to malicious people or can they not function alone?

I found them in the temp internet folder if it helps, is there anyway of knowing what the main infection was they came from?

thankyou for helping me out

If they are trace registry keys, no they can't do anything.
