Whats wrong with usenet nowadays? Why does my symantec antivirus see trojan horses when I download files?

Question by smoothie pro: Whats wrong with usenet nowadays? Why does my symantec antivirus see trojan horses when I download files?
I use giganews.com for usenet file downloads especially progs and for rars. I use symantec endpoint protection. Is the trojan horse real or AV is making a false alarm?

For the most part, it is usually a false alarm. HOWEVER, I would be especially careful when downloading any RAR files or Keygens. Keep track of what you download, and if your system starts acting up, IMMEDIATELY delete the recent “iffy” files you’ve downloaded and run spybot.
