just as i thought i had got rid of platte media i am now wondering if it is trying to attatch itself to big fish games which I have been using for years without problems. Avast has found the trojan but cannot remove because it is shared with big fish games. What should i do next??
Am at a loss and am hoping platte wont appear again
thanks

Try going to Free ESET Online Antivirus Scanner do a full online scan to see if it can remove it.
if not post back,,,what is the exact name of the trojan your AntiVirus has found.

Do you think it would be better for a nebie like me to ditch macafee and buy this software.

We, at Free PC Help, strongly recommend Nod32http://www.eset.com/ as a resident AntiVirus because it offers real-time protection, has a very high detection rate and is very efficient on resources too. If you want a free alternative, then you might want to consider Avira AntiVirhttp://www.free-av.com/. I personally would ditch McAfee as it is known to cause major conflicts and crashes. At the end of the day, it is your opinion that matters. :)

I run a bought version of Nod 32's Security Suite Bess and find it extremely good.

Thank you all I think I will ditch macafee and buy the NOd 32s as Macafee does not seen to detect the trojans.
Thank you
