    Good day Funsters...

    I ran an AVG full computer scan last night while I was getting my beauty sleep...

    This morning it told me it had dealt with two malicious viruses...

    000\f_002ca8 JS/Downloader Agent

    and

    000\f_002caa JS/Downloader Agent

    Do any of you clever Funster Computer Boffins know what these mean?

    Are Murdoch's Dark Agents after me?

    JJ

    Laptop is and always seems to have been running normally (if you can ever call Vista's performance normal)

    A Downloader Agent is a type of trojan.

    All being well AVG will have sorted the problem for you but it would do no harm to install and run Malwarebytes as well, just in case.

    Nothing to do with Murdoch - that would be a Downmarket Agent :Laughing:

    Yes, I got that too :Smile: I think it's some sort of directory/folder reference related to your machine. Googling just Downloader Agent brings up lots of explanations.

    JS/Downloader.Agent is a detection for JavaScript files that may have malicious intent to download and execute additional malware onto the computer. When successfully invaded a computer, JS/Downloader.Agent will inject itself on Internet Explorer that may lead to redirection of web browser.:Eeek:
