I posted a still unanswered HJL regarding the sudden detection by Ewido of "Trojan Passview" - Classified High, and embedded in 2-300 of my old and recent free downloads, and the detection of a Virus "Backdoor.Generic2.TR" by AVG 7.0, which I cannot get rid of.

I am also "protected" by Spyware Blaster, and Spyware Guard, do regular checks with AdAware, and SpyBot. None of these have picked up the problem.

While waiting for a response from my HJL, I entered the Trojan PassView name into Google and came up with the number 1 site of http://www.nirsoft.n...ive_report.html.

They state that they have developed non-malicious software, one of which is Mail Pass View, which give false positives with anti-viral software of the above named Trojans, and they recommend telling your anti-viral provider that this is the case when you get these viruses.

I note that AVG has taken over Ewido. Have they recently updated their database which has picked up an "Innocent" piece of code, frightening the hellout of internet users and causing some to delete all their affected files or worse, reformat their drives

What does this mean that this software is obviously embedded in some downloads?
Should the Trojans be ignored?
Is my Computer and Data safe?
Do I have to delete all the affected files?
