I recently became infected and used multiple products to try to clean it. The last one I tried was CCE. It, among other places, found malware in Ad-Aware, saying that the threat was Backdoor.Win32.Evilbot.SJ. It also found malware embedded in system components and when it cleaned it, the PC became unbootable.
As a result, I wiped my drive and started over. Now that I’m up and running again, I re-download and installed Ad-Aware as my real-time AV. Just for the fun of it, I ran CCE again, and it is still reporting Ad-Aware as Backdoor.Win32.Evilbot.SJ. Has anyone experienced this? Is it a false positive or should I be afraid?
