Divocodec detected as Malware by my AntiVirus
Whenever you plan to install something on your computer, do a virus scan first on the installer that you are about to launch before you actually launch the setup. This way, you are assured that your computer is safe from any virus or malware that can infect its system. Unless you are really sure that the file you are going to execute is clean and can really be trusted.
After your antivirus removed the detected malware and you are still not convinced that your computer is already clean, then run a full-system scan to remove your doubts. But there is one thing that you should know after your computer got infected, when a virus or any malware infects a computer it creates some garbage entries in the computer’s registry. When an antivirus detects and removes that virus or malware from the system it does not delete all those entries created by the virus or malware. The virus is removed but some of the bits of its “journal” are still present on the registry.
