Virus detected

Does anyone know anything about a virus called Trojan.Win32.Fraudpack.ggr? Somehow my computer got infected.

Hopefully your virus protection program caught it and deleted/quarentined it?

Computers get infected when a user downloads a malicious program, or a file in a email and executes it.

Get it fixed before your ISP turns off your internet access.

Did you start having popups for some program saying you had spyware, or trying to scan your computer? Did you click on a link for something like that?

No, I didn't have anything unusual happen. I quarentined and deleted the virus. I then scanned my computer again and nothing showed up. Should my computer be OK now?

It should be fine. If your antivirus got it, I don't see any more problems.

Just be aware of what you download.
