Title: Temp files/folders found as virus
Post by: otcd on March 02, 2014, 09:09:08 PM
Hi
Each time my PC boot, Avast finds some temp folders at User/application/local/... as viruses
The folders/files related somehow to BOX sync SW (cloud files keeping)
The note shows one time and cleaning these folders doesn't help
What can be wrong? how do i stop these messages of Avast?
My PC is windows 8.1 64 bit
TX

We will need more detail on the exact location ?
We will also need the file name and malware name given in the avast detection ?

Here, avast detected a Malware in this folder path on windows 7. C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA64\temp The file named was tmp4C7A. exe
Now, I am not sure how it got there despite the resident shield being on the ON state. Nevertheless, it detected the file as a virus few times but couldn't seem to have deleted it. So, I ran boot time scan. It deleted the file. However, now I do not know if it had deleted an important system file. So far there is no problem as such so I guess, it was not that important. There is another file of similar type named tmpE495. exe which is clean.

I just hope everything is fine. You could run a boot scan and see if it solves.

If it's in a temp folder it is unlikely to be an important system file.
