VB and VBA Program Settings

Recommended Posts

I downloaded and started using RegCleaner - as my Add/Remove Programs did not always work as it should - however, I have come across VB and VBA Program Settings - and as I did not know what it was - searched the web - now it appears it is a TROJAN and attaches itself to programs - and one of those programs is CCleaner - can you please tell me - if this TROJAN is really bad as some of the "websites" say - or can i leave it alone. The reason I ask is that i did delete VB and VBA as it was attached to CCleaner and I subsequently lost all my settings when i next went to use CCleaner

VB is usually Visual Basic and is required by many programs, including CCleaner, for normal functioning, not usually a trojan (though as with anything theres always a slim possibility).

 

If you want be sure your computer is clean post a HijackThis log in the relevent forum section.

It appears to be pointing to a trojan WITHIN the VB settings, not VB itself so you may have an infection of some sort. You should definitely post a HighjackThis log in the relevent section of the forum as suggested:
