    Will updating help detect a virus that cannot be found using the trial version?


      I just installed the trial version of USB Virus Scan 2.3 and tested it on a number of external data storage devices, which I know to be infected by what seems to be a virus that thrives on transferring data via USB ports.

      However, when scanning the removable media for virus infestations, no problems are reported. How do I know whether the virus(es) cannot be detected by the trial version of USB Virus Scan or simply cannot be detected/removed by the software altogether? In other words, I want to know if it is worth investing the money for the subscription fee if I want to resolve the virus problem I have.

      The following infections are detected on an external hard drive by my anti-virus programme, but are not picked up by the version of USB Virus Scan I have:


      \vwewav8.com - Win32/PSW.OnLineGames.NMY trojan
      \w.com - a variant of Win32/Pacex.Gen virus
      \1014\DIR40.EXE\FIL11.EXE - a variant of Win32/Kryptik.C trojan
      \1014\DIR44.DLL\FIL18.DLL - a variant of Win32/Kryptik.AS trojan
      \1014\DIR44.DLL\FIL393.DLL - a variant of Win32/Kryptik.CB trojan

      What do I do?
