Default TR/Dropper.Gen

Hi,
I've asked in several forums but I think you would really help me.
I found that file TR/Dropper.Gen and its unknown to me. Do you know if it is a virus? If it is how do i deal with it? I scanned my computer with my av program but it does not detect it? help

Hello, TimW,
I was actually worrying only for this file and i want to know what it is, how i got it and if it is dangerous.
Anyways, I followed all of the steps.
I am using only one AV program, I do not have several Firewalls and I am not using disk emulation programs.
So, are you familiar with this file and do you have any info about it?
Thanks.

All you've given us is a generic name the scanner has given the threat. We would need exact file and file location of threat at the very least.

I solved the problem with a little help and a little google-ing. I searched for the file name and found some information that answered my questions and helped me remove the file (which as i thought was a virus).
For anyone with the same problem - here is what i found: http://www.americanpendulum.com/en/2...trdropper-gen/ and
http://www.avira.com/en/support-thre.../3647/tlang/en
What i did was that i ended the process in the Task Manager and deleted the file from Program files and from the computer registry.

Thank you TimW and Kestrel13! for your answers
