After all my paranoia about getting a virus or whatever I actually got one! Ad-aware only gave it a generic name though. trojan.win32.pak!cobra. I have no idea how long it's been there or whatever so I'm just wondering what it is and where it may have come from.

*EDIT* Scratch that. Turns out it identified Daemon tools as a trojan and uninstalled it. I so badly want to facepalm right now.

Daemon tools isn't compromised. You might have downloaded a version that was or your AV is mistakenly recognizing it as a virus.

Yeah my flatmate thinks it thought it was a virus. Still not happy but at least I didn't have a virus
