    Default Trojan found on Crap Cleaner exe file

    I just downloaded the latest version of Ccleaner(Crap Cleaner) and a ClamWin scan reveals ccleaner.exe is a Trojan.Agent-65355 infected file. Has anyone else found this Trojan on their pc?

    So naturally you downloaded crap cleaner from the correct source?

    Where did you download it from?

    I just downloaded it from FileHippo via ccleaner.com and NOD32, Malwarebytes and Spybot found nothing.

    So its probably either a FP or dodgy download.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention it but I did download it from their website, I always do. I did another scan and now it says an update from ClamWin is also infected(!!) is this a trojan I may've downloaded previously form somewhere and is now infecting all these files or are they all bogus alerts?

    Suggest you install the likes of malwarebytes and trojan remover and give your computer a good scan!

    I was told be a comp expert that ClamWin is the best free AV program(he swears by it too), is that not true? which free one is better? which one is best overall?

    I'll do a scan with TR and come back.

    IMO Clamwin is only good as a portableapp.
