Hello all,

So I ran my usual scan last night set to turn off and find this this morning:

trojan horse dropper.generic8.avyy

Under file path:
C:\SwSetup\ESUW7\EXE_ESU.exe

I'm just enquiring as to whether this is a false positive? As I've rumbled through me internet history and I've gone on no unusual sites and can't think where it might have come from. Am I also right in thinking this is a HP folder? (it's a HP laptop)

A second issue is this in my virus vault which I can't seem to delete (clicking delete does nothing):
Found registry key with reference to infected file C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\audiosurf\engine\QuestViewer.exe

HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\FirewallRules\\{A03A9D5A-4341-4389-9202-4DE01CA397F4}

Any help is appreciated, thank-you.

I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I too have the Trojan Horse Dropper.Generic8.AVYY.
I ran my AVG and it said it was found under C:\SwSetup\ESUW7\EXE_ESU.exe.
What I was wondering is what is Trojan Horse Dropper.Generic8.AVYY, and is it still a threat to my laptop even though AVG said it removed it?
I'm just overly paranoid about this kind of stuff, and I'm not exactly tech smart when it comes to things like this, so I'm trying to fix this the best I can.

Hopefully I did this right. I attached a folder that has all 3 things you asked for. If I didn't do something right, I'm sorry.
