Hi all,

Today, as I do everyday, I scanned my pc with MBAM and got an alert about a Trojan.Agent-registry key. I have quarantied the item.

The question is if this was a true alert or a false positive, since I haven't installed anything on my pc, since yesterday.

I would appreciate your help.

Here is the nfo:

Registry Keys Infected:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts\e0200804 (Trojan.Agent) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Thanks alot.

Hi,

No. This is a new laptop. New, meaning I bought it 20 days ago. But last week, MBAM produced the following:

Registry Data Items Infected:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoActiveDesktopChanges (Hijack.DisplayProperties) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Do you think that it's related?

Thanks.

TrDo.

PS. Why did you move my post? I'm not sure if this a false positive or not.

Should I restore the item back to its position please? Is it safe?

Thanks.

Trojan.Agent is not a threat in itself, it is a fake threat displayed by rogue anti-spyware programs. These programs use this and other scare tactics to get the user to buy the full version of the fake spyware removal programs.

Programs related to Trojan.Agent should not be trusted under any circumstances and should be removed upon detection.
