Unhappy Avg Help

I have AVG 7.0.322 anti virus and have just foun a Trojan Horse Dropper.Small.22.AW, does anyone know how bad that trojan is or what damage it does?

Because ive never had a trojan before whilst using AVG I just wanted to know will i get rid of it for good if I delete the file or shall I try to heal the file?

healing it won't work since trojans dont copy themselves to opther programs, so that file will bet he trogan itself. Go for a deletion.

Usually though AVG won't be able to delete it automatically, and tyou'll have to go to the link, which will tell you exactly how to delete it step by step

Hope this helps

On AVG when it says it can't heal or delete the file, it should have a URL within the program itself that will link to a website.

Does it delete it automatically though? In which case you'll be fine.

Yeah, it shouldn't find anything now.
All your left to do then is delete it from the virus fault, getting rid of it completely
