How to block 'Rootkit.Win32.Agent.Gen' ?

Recommended Posts

Not sure how it works, but browsing indicates it has something to do with a 'trojan'.

Is there anyway to block such 'trojans' with OA ?

Found it with Ad-Aware and quarantined it, but how to prevent it from re-occurring ?

I'd suggest you visit the "Help my PC is infected" section for assistance with making sure all malware is really gone. You can block malware with OA when it tries to run, by choosing "Block". I'm assuming that you must have allowed this malware to run at some point though (unless you are referring to an alert from your AV in which case this isn't really an OA related issue). Assuming it has run, blocking any parts of it that might show up in OA now, would not necessarily stop it - it could be deep in your system now, especially if it's a rootkit.
