Trojan.Gen.2

Hi everyone,

I apologise if this topic has been discussed before, I'm new to this!

A couple of days ago my norton software detected and quarantined a Trojan.Gen.2 virus. I got the security message notifying me of this and in the quarantine section there was a message saying "Threat resolved. No action required." The file that caused this was a .tmp file.

This is purely for my peace of mind - has the virus been deleted completely or do I need to delete the infected file? I have a full system scan and nothing wad wrong and I know my Norton AntiVirus had said I don't need to take any further action but I can't help but think the virus is still on my laptop somewhere! There are no problems with my laptop, everything seems to be working fine. As I said this is only to put my mind at rest!

Thanks in advance for any info you may have (for someone who isn't computer literate!)

Your system should be fine, no action required, Norton's has done it's job for you

Hello Adam81

For a good second opinion install Malwarebytes and run a full scan.

You can download it here  MBAM

Remember to update it before the scan.

Thanks to both of you. Downloaded that malware software and found nothing so I guess I'm ok!

Thanks again

Their is very slight chance of it being a false Positive too!
