Badtrans.B email worm was found in several locations in Europe on 24th of November 2001. This worm sends variably named attachments which might execute automatically when the emails are viewed. Badtrans.B spreads on Windows 32-bit systems, sending email messages with infected attached files, as well as installing spying trojan component to steal information from infected systems.

If the file can't be deleted (locked by Windows), you will have to delete it manually. First, write down the location and file name of a file that FSAV detected as 'Trojan.PSW.Hooker'. Then, depending on your operating system do the following:
For Windows 95/98 users
If you have Windows 95 or 98, restart your system in MS-DOS mode, and type at command prompt 'DEL' followed by a space and a location of trojan file you put down before. Then press 'Enter' and the trojan file will be deleted.For Windows ME users
If you have Windows ME, you will need to boot your computer with a system diskette and type at command prompt 'DEL' followed by a space and a location of trojan file you put down before. Then press 'Enter' and the trojan file will be deleted. It is also advised to disable System Restore function of Windows ME as the worm and trojan files can re-appear. Here are the instructions on how to disable System Restore feature: https://www.europe.f-secure.com/v-descs/sfc_dis.shtml
For Windows NT4/2000/XP users
If you have Windows NT, 2000 or XP please rename the trojan's file using your Windows Explorer. Rename the file with a different name, 'trojan.000' for example and restart your system. Then scan your system with FSAV and when FSAV detects the trojan in the file earlier renamed by you select 'Delete' disinfection action. This will remove the trojan's file from your system.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest detection database updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
NOTE If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note You need administrative rights to change the settings.
