Ambiguity concern regarding trojan-gamethief.win32.wow!ik

Recommended Posts


I've recently opened a file which, as I later found out, was the trojan that I displayed in my topic. I have successfully removed it, and do not, as a matter of fact, own WoW. But I'd like to keep my PC as clean as possible, so I'd like to know if the trojan infects any other files. I ran a full scan and the scan cleaned the infected file (and the temp file which was made because I opened it in winrar) but nothing else.

Should I lower my paranoia?
