I have no problem regarding the performance of my computer system. But the irritating alert message from antivirus keeps annoying me.

Downloader-GN trojan download the internet worm from the internet. Normally this torjan download Mimail.P variant in the computer system. This trojan comes in the attachement with the name “Paypal.zip” and it spreads through e-mail.
The infected mail sample is given below.
From: do_not_reply@paypal.com

So if get the similar kind of email do not download the attachment from this virus.

Re: Use MacAfee antivirus for removing this trojan

Once this trojan enters your computer system then it executes the paypal.exe and it download the file with the name ppapp.bin. This trojan tries to steal the credit card information from the computer system who’s security is compromised. If your antivirus is not deleting this trojan from your computer system then change your antivirus to Macafee antivirus. I am using this antivirus and it is working fine for my computer system.
