Hi out there, this is probably old hat but Mcafee virus detection always shows that I have a malware problem with pw-crack aircrack but won't delete. I've tried all sorts of anti malware software to get rid of this but none work. Why can't maafee fix this? Is it a real problem. Can anyone help?

Re: PW-Crack

Hey, if you want that file deleted from your pc  download and install FileAssassin to remove it.

Re: PW-Crack

File assasin will only work if you know the file name. Mcafee simply says you are infected with pw-crack. A search of the machine doesn't show a file or folder called pw-crack. Is this malware hidden under a different name or numbers? Can anyone help.

Re: PW-Crack

The following is what is presented by Mcafee. Why isn't there a fix for this when mcafee anti-virus software is the only one that finds it. Malwarebytes etc., doesn't find this problem.
