    What does this do and do I need to be concerned? It is in a program I downloaded but have not yet installed.
    I really don't know what trojans do.:shock

    I would really suggest deleting that file.

    Trojans are viruses that do some pretty bad stuff to your computer. In fact, if you have an anti virus program I would suggest running a full scan of your system. It could have installed something on your computer that you did not know about...

    Update your anti-virus before running the scan. You r anti-virus should have caught the trojan and stopped it form installing in the 1st place.

    And to answer your question about what a trojan is:

    Thank you so much for the detailed answer. I have deleted the program. It was never installed yet. AVG caught it, but I didn't know what it was. I sure do now
