What Is Cryptic.PX?

  Newuser4165 09:52 16 May 10

After logging on to my works email server AVG keeps on showing an infection with the troljan Cryptic.PX.
A Google search has come up blank.
Does anyone know what it does.
AVG has cleared it but it reappeared in System Restore (quite common with viruses I understand).
System Restore has been turned off and now there is no further trace of it - yet!

If you have switched system restore off switch it back on now.
Like any security program it is always better just to quarantine any problems in case they are false positives and you have to restore them again.

Hi buteman
I have already turned it back on - I forgot to mention that in my initial post.
Sorry about that.

Switching off restore deletes the restore points and the virus that is in there.

Switching back on creates a new restore point.
