    Greetings;

    I scanned my system with Ad-Aware. The "Win32.Trojan.Downloader" first
    appeared on the Sept. 1st scan, then again on Sept. 8th, now again on
    Sept. 20th.

    I really wasn't making the connection that it was still there...I
    thought Ad-Aware had been removing it each time I told it to, but now I
    see it wasn't.

    How do I get rid of this nasty thingamabob? Thanks!

    (Win98SE)

    You might want to look here:

    SE1R123 13.09.2006 is now availiable, new definition file for Ad-Aware SE.
    ....

    This fixes a False Positive in Win32.Trojan.Downloader.

    Greetings;

    Thanks, but I already have that update...and the one after it. Here's
    the first few lines of the log it produced:
