In basic terms, what is - Trojan.Agent/Gen-Koobface(Bonkers). Cheers.

Which program is telling you you have this infection, and which file is supposedly infected? I've seen false positives with this name before...

I'd scan with malwarebytes anti malware and see if that finds anything.

Superanti spyware found it and Quarantined it. It says it was in MY DOCS/DATA/COMPMDB.EXE. Strange as i have good Anti virus and CCleaner so I wondered. Cheers.

My money is on false positive. Scan it with malwarebytes and if that's clean I'd restore the file and ignore it. :2cents:

If you have all the files (or had) it's probably a genuine infection, if not, false positive

Thanks for that. So i have CCleaner and Super Antispyware so is that silly. Do I only need 1 freeware that does this type of thing? Which one is best? Cheers.

Ccleaner isnt an anti-virus / malware program. It maybe a false +. Others get the same thing. http://forums.superantispyware.com/index.php?/topic/3677-trojanagentgen-koobfacebonkers-false-positive/

Use an anti-virus

I have a great Anti Virus and so far it has worked perfectly. Just wondered why SuperAntiSpyware picked up this Trojan?
Anyhow also wondered to clean up, should I have CCleaner and SuperAntiSpyware or just 1 of them? Or another one? Cheers.

You have WHAT AV program.
Most(all actually) are ridiculously bad at detecting 'spyware'. You always need a separate spyware scanner proggy.
Try malwarebytes.
Also , have a look at what file(s) & where the file was.

Should I have a vacuum cleaner & a microwave or just one?

I had a relative with this koobface
Its the facebook worm (i think)
I couldnt remove it and had to format in the end
It stopped the pc logging in
