The malware(TROJ_PIDIEF.VF ) that have found your laptop is type of trojan horse. This trojan horse does not replicate itself. This Trojan got the attention from any media sources which is independent or other security firms, it medium risk threat. This threat exploits vulnerabilities in any acrobat or adobe file to drop/introduce the executable file name as BKDR_FENSED.A and execute it.

Re: Infected by TROJ_PIDIEF.VF malware

According to me, the malware found your notebook is trojan horse and it enters many be from from malicious spam email messages. This type of trojans cannot be removed easily from the machine, especially when using the trial version of antivirus. They get attention from the other security firms and media sources(youtube, facebook, etc). You always use licensed version of antivirus and must also updated it on every day basis, because your son is using internet on daily basis.

My knowledge about this TROJ_PIDIEF.VF trojan is that, it has a malicious program which will be attached to a email spam or abuse other malicious programs to break into the computer. It performs the activities of infecting other files with help of security holes and infects your computer more and more. It has advantage of a infecting in certain versions of Adobe Reader and Acrobat. This infection helps attacker to execute its code in PDF file. Make your antivirus updated and check you can remove it or not.
