Worm/Generic2.ceag is a worm that currently has poor distribution in the wild. Like most worms, Worm/Generic2.ceag has the potential for distributing itself by copying itself to removable drives or network-shared directories, and SpywareRemove.com malware researchers especially recommend that you keep your security intact to monitor these infection vectors. SpywareRemove.com malware research team also notes that recent Worm/Generic2.ceag infection reports are indicative of a potential false positive where Worm/Generic2.ceag may be detected as infecting explorer.exe when Worm/Generic2.ceag is actually not present. You should use other anti-malware software to confirm or debunk this possibility, and set your inaccurate scanner to ignore Worm/Generic2.ceag if you’ve confirmed it to be an unintentionally fake alert.
Why Those Regular Worm/Generic2.ceag Warnings May not Be a Reason to Fret
While Worm/Generic2.ceag can be a genuine PC threat that can harm your computer, recent Worm/Generic2.ceag infection alerts (as of early July 2012) are strongly indicative of a new false positive being included in an AVG database update. This update will cause your AVG software to detect explorer.exe as being infected by Worm/Generic2.ceag even if the file is clean; since explorer.exe is a normal system component, the result is that you’ll see Worm/Generic2.ceag warning messages appear on a regular basis.
SpywareRemove.com malware researchers especially discourage any attempt to delete explorer.exe or the fake Worm/Generic2.ceag to stop these warning messages from appearing, since this can damage Windows permanently.
When There Might Be a Real Worm/Generic2.ceag Slithering Around Your PC
Other Worm/Generic2.ceag warnings, particularly for those that involve files other than explorer.exe, may be genuine. If your anti-malware software detects multiple Worm/Generic2.ceag alerts in several locations, Worm/Generic2.ceag infections for files other than the one noted above, or Worm/Generic2.ceag infections that are confirmed by non-AVG brands of anti-malware products, you should consider your PC infected.
As is always the case with worms, your top priority with a true Worm/Generic2.ceag infection should be to prevent Worm/Generic2.ceag from distributing itself to other PCs. Avoid using removable media devices until you’ve disinfected them along with your computer and SpywareRemove.com malware experts also recommend that you prevent other PC users from accessing network-shared folders or files on your hard drive. As an old worm, Worm/Generic2.ceag should be deletable by most brand of anti-malware software, although your system scans should be sufficiently thorough to catch all copies of Worm/Generic2.ceag. Any delay in removing Worm/Generic2.ceag can place your PC in danger of having system components damaged, confidential information stolen, or security settings changed in undesirable ways.
