Default Coreflood

Every time I run my McAfee Virus Scan Professional 2004 I get 2 files named Coreflood.

It says they are trojans and it wont let me delete or quarantine them and I cant seem to find them anywhere on my system. Has anyone else run into this? And how can I get rid of the 2 files?

You are going to need a Trojan Deleter. It will run much like Nortan Anti-Virus or McAfee, but will only search for Trojans on the system. I have never heard of Coreflood, but there is no telling what information that it could have taken from your computer or keystrokes and submitted to some other user. My suggestion is to look for a product called The Cleaner. I use it at my work and at my home. Jump on this quick. You should be able to download the cleaner, but it will cost you. It could never hurt to have a Trojan deleter on your system.
