Win32.Trojan.Downloader: What is it?

Hi there,

I ran Ad-aware, and it detected and removed:

It claims the infected file was:
(LCC is a small Win32 C compiler)

I can't find information about this malware. Can someone explain what it does and what risks I might be under? Does it keylog passwords, etc?

The detection of zlib.dll from AdAware as a WIN32.TROJAN.DOWNLOADER infection is a false-positive.  According to Steve from LavaSoft, the maker of AdAware, zlib.dll was supposed to be removed from detection as of May 3 2006.
Of coarse there is always a chance that the zlib.dll could be infected, so I would suggest running another malware scanner for a second opinion.
