  • Trojan.Downloader.Small.AAQR

    Bitdefender keeps notifying me with an alert that a virus was blocked: Trojan.Downloader.Small.AAQR

    It was accessed by svhost.

    Location is C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\tmp .edb

    Bitdefender claims that it could not disinfenct, delete or quarantine this item. Access to this object has been denied.

    What does this mean? When I run a scan, nothing is detected. But I keep getting this pop-up alert. I've just sent an e-mail to Bitdefender, and am waiting on their reply.

    Does anyone know what this is, or how can I remedy this situation?

    you likely have another virus that is trying to install that one.
    Reboot into safe mode and run a scan.

      When I reboot in Safe Mode, Bit Defender won't operate.

      When I type in the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\tmp .edb, the computer can't find it. It can't even locate C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution. I can't find it on my system.

      Bit Defender Antivirus runs but does not detect it during a scan, but it is Bit Defender that keep "Blocking" the thing.

      Neither Comodo Firewall or Maleware Bytes reports of detects a thing.

      Could it be a false positive? I notice no performance issues with the computer.

      Still waiting on BitDefender's response.

        Actually, reviewing my Antivirus logs and Windows Update history, the first mention (or alert) of this "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\tm p .edb" came in about ten minutes before Windows Auto Downloaded a "Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7 (KB976325).

        What's up with that?
