Hi Guys,
Just trying to download VLC Media Player and AVG intercedes and says
"Blocked several treats,
found MalSign.Zula... infected
MalSign.OptimizerPro.781 infected.


Does anyone know if these are real treats or is AVG just being super careful??
I tried googling them without much success
Thanks
Rob

What was the source of VLC?

If it wasn't from here (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html) I'd get rid of it and get it from there.

Is there a downloads page that I am not aware of Cato?
Can't see it anywhere.

Sounds like you downloaded an installer from CNet or something that came bundled with shitware. Get it straight from the VLC website as Cato says.

PC Optimizer Pro is a rogue anti-spyware and you should delete it.


Please download AdwCleaner ('http://general-changelog-team.fr/fr/downloads/finish/20-outils-de-xplode/2-adwcleaner') by Xplode onto your desktop.

Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Clean.
A logfile will automatically open after the scan has finished.
Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[R1].txt as well.

I think AVG blocked it before he installed whatever file he downloaded

Pity it was just some bundled crapware, rather than detecting an actual virus...
