Am I infected?
« on: August 06, 2012, 10:39:23 PM »
Bit of a wierd 1.

Turned on my machine today, went to the toilet and came back and Avast was asking to restart my computer and do a full scan from boot up. I said yes but cancelled it because it was taking too long.

I go look in virus chest and I noticed that tier0_s.dll from my steam folder is sitting in there, and that it was transfered in there today. But where it says "Virus description", it says "--no virus--"

What does this mean?
