Trojans and viruses

I run Windows XP. My PC was acting up so I ran scans with AVG 9.0 Pro, Malwarebytes and AdAware. Nothing was found, so I then ran the scans again in safe mode. AVG and Malwarebytes again found nothing, but AdAware found a Trojan.Win32.Generic!SB.O, a Trojan.Win32.Gframe(v), and Win32.PUP.Bandoo(800).

I know that the first one is the generic detection for password-stealing Trojan horse programmes that install keyloggers which record keystrokes and sends the data to the malicious operators who distributed the malware, but I have been unable to find out exactly what harm the other two do to a computer.

Can anyone help me out here, please?

Win32.PUP.Bandoo(800). seems fairly low risk, but I think it attacks Calendar

The link you gave me only showed my thread and your reply in PC Advisor, but thanks anyway.

It is strange, isn't it how one programme will find a virus or threat which other programmes miss!
