New to this forum and I have a question. I am currently running Windows 7 at 64. When running the Microsoft Safety Scanner, I received the mesage that Trojanos/Alureon A was partially removed. My McAfee does not show this up in its scans. Would McAfee successfully remove this Trojan, which has been circulating for 3 years or so?. I have the latest McAfee updates loaded.
