Possible Trojan

Hi,
Last week I downloaded a program caller aTube Catcher, which allows you to download videos from youtube. I have installed the program on my new laptop, and also my partner's laptop. We both use McAfee, and installed the program without any problems.

However this evening I was using a USB with the aTube Installer file on it, and AVG (On my home computer) detected it as a Trojan - PWS Banker.

I have done some research on the trojan, and I am now worried that both our laptops are now infected!

So firstly, what should we do to ensure we do not have the trojan, and secondly where did it come from!

Thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated!
Cheers Jason

RE: Possible Trojan

That's AVG anti-spyware that detected it? Just asking because you shouldn't be running two anti-virus applications at the same time.

Download, update and run the free versions of these two tools:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Let them remove anything they find.

Also keep Windows right up to date at all times.

Thanks Peter,
No I'm only running McAfee on my laptop. I have AVG anti-virus installed on my home computer, which detected the trojan on my USB.
I'll download those files now and scan my computer! happy
