Found a trojan in c.c.c.p. latest and lost
To play some of last shows of /roots I had to uninstall all codecs again and got the lastest c.c.c.p. codec files from www.free-codecs.com. Usual deal with a lot of h24 things that wont play.
Ok had some problems and gaaah! started scannning computer same night installed that.
I use avast antivirus at the moment and some agent removers I try to keep updated from http://wirusy.antivirenkit.pl/en/szczepionki. Those are free and work pretty well. The 1st one they have on the list Agent is the one and it found only in the Installed directory of cccp that:
was a trojan.
The problems I have now are my Midi mixer thing is gone. I can no longer play .Mid files - it says " Midi device not installed, error windows cannot play file. " and I cannot hear shockwave files and .wav files also wont work. Im not sure that it happened from this or the last windows microsoft sp2 patch that was big last week either.
I never and the zoom player but did select both players installed on the install for c.c.c.p codec pack.
any how I have uninstalled that and pieced together a full collection of individuals and wil by-pass using the cccp thing.
Now I will probably have to full repair install xp pro again and with sp2 on here I am going to have a big headack since I cannot get windows to re install the midi thing.
check it yourselves, you all recomending that thing pack. I had nortons 2005 scan the compressed file it found nothing and nothing expanded either but the version 188.8.131.52 gdata agent remover did.

I'd recommend you download it only from the official CCCP site:
The official pack does not contain a trojan, but you should be careful where you download things from.

I should also add that I have had some trouble with Avast properly detecting and removing ALL trojans that
unfortunately got on my PC recently (punishment for searching for a QT7 keygenerator I suppose). Only Kaspersky
anti-virus was able to properly remove them all. The one Avast didn't detect (even when pointed to the exact file!) was
the "loading" trojan that was actually loading other trojans on my PC (which Avast fortunately did detect), so this experience
has dented my trust in Avast quite a bit.
Just my 2cts.
