hello list,I believe my daw has a virus and would like to hear any and all suggestions as to how to proceed.
I have AVG free edition installed on the DAW, and in response to some screwy computer behavior lately, I ran a scan.tonight--the results are as follows:
AVG immediately reports that my Partition table, Boot sector, DosKernal.exe, and User32.dll have all changed--not good!
The scan continues, and when finished, AVG says "no problems found" Huh? No problems? what ddoes it consider a problem if not those things?
Finally, after reading the test results report, I close out AVG , and it crashes telling me that something bad happened and it has to go bye bye now.
So, In your collective informed opinions is this as bad as it sounds? I don't think AVG can actually detect any specific problem beyond the fact that these vital areas have changed--but that's enough to flag a serious problem in my book. Should I ignore AVG's report of no problems and assume the worst here?
How would suggest I proceed from here?
