    Hey. Last week I ran my virus scan because Word was acting really strange. I kept getting macro errors and I didn't know why, so I figured I had a virus. So, I scan my computer and sure enough - there's one. I found out through some research that it is "low" risk and it doesn't seem to be a macro virus, but it's the only one that 4 different virus scans found. I know where it is on my hard drive, but I don't want to just delete it because I am not sure if that is going to rid me of the problem. I have contacted HP's computer help desk, but after 4 hours of 45 minute pauses in between concerns, I got nothing accomplished except for a splitting headache. I think this virus is slowly shutting down files in my computer because this is the log that I received from my virus check which I NEVER got anything like this before:

    i presume your antivirus program did not remove virus. try avg7(free version) from www.grisoft.com & also do an online scan with www.antivirus.com. download a copy of ad-aware se from lavasoft.com for any spywares

    Thanks. I did look over the posts and researched to make sure that I wasn't going to be doubling up on the question prior to making my post. I read that post in detail, but I wasn't sure if the directions would be the same for different types of viruses. I am going to try those steps today and see if I can get rid of this nasty little thing! Thanks for the replies.

    Who and WHY would someone want to put out viruses to harm people's computers they don't even know? What is the point? I'll never get it...

    For personally enjoyment or satisfaction, knowing that they can do stuff to other peoples computers pretty easy.

    Some are just to show up M$ security, and dont do any harm.

    This threat is detected by the latest signature updates.











    Win32.SillyDl is a family of trojans that act as downloaders.

    A downloader is a program that automatically downloads and runs and/or installs other software without the user's knowledge or permission.

    In addition to downloading and installing other software, it may download updated versions of itself.

    A downloader may install itself in a manner that allows it to constantly check for updated files. For example, it may add an entry to the following registry key:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    A Win32.SillyDl variant may download other trojans, or non-malicious programs such as adware. At any given moment in time, the program(s) it attempts to download may be changed or updated, or may be unavailable altogether. They usually download using HTTP.

    Win32.SillyDl variants are usually quite small, due to their limited functionality. They may be compressed with any of a variety of executable packers, such as UPX, ASPack or FSG.
