trojan fakealert Driver cleaner

Anyone now of this trojan. My AOL spywear picked it up, AVG and Widows Defender missed it. Anyway AOL spywear said it had Blocked it.

Is safe to say, its blocked for good, or is it waiting to get out!

Thanks

Laptop, ur very welcome, and no on the PC shop question, I'm just a bod like urself trying to stay up to date with the ever advancing technology, there are many on here who know much more than I. I'm simply driven by the more you know, the better able you are to protect urself and avoid computer downtime, which costs money. No computer = no trade, no trade = no beer :)
