    Generic VB.z trojan getting detected very often and deleted

      hi All,

         hoping someone can help me here. Am getting a constant Generic VB.z trojan alert from McAfee which deletes a tmp file creation process onto the temp folder. I have updated to the latest DAT's and also am using Artemis high Alert level to scan through my laptop. Does not find anything. Also, McAfee does not detect any file creation onto the temp folder till I am connected to the internet. I dont normally use IE, but as soon as I do, I end up getting popups. I have run SuperAntispyware, Malwarebytes and numerous scans of McAfee as well, and none are able to pick this up. I also referred to the following information on McAfee on this http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_171235.htm for which I already have the latest DAT''s but unfortunately, still no luck. Also, this is a svchost generated file. I have gone through process explorer as well and looked through every svchost program. Did not find any unusual dll's or exe files in there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


      Do let me know.
