Who reloaded your PC and did they install another anti-virus ?

Are you getting any avast errors when the system starts, if so what ?
Is there a red circle with bar over the avast icon ?

What avast processes are running, see image ?

I have ad-ware in temp file. i move it to chest as it advisemes but it still pops up once in awhile. like it still in temp files ad-ware name is DOMPilot.dll
what is the best ad-ware spyware remover program?
i found one program XoftSpySE (The latest and most advanced Spyware detection and removal application on the Internet.)
Can i use it together with avast? Maybe it can detect that ad-ware in temp file and will remove it?
I hear also that too many antivirus programs are not good..so what should i do?

Personally I wouldn't touch xoftspy they have a very chequered history, whilst they are supposedly no longer adware, etc. there are plenty of other options out there without this history and they are free.

If you haven't already got this software (freeware), download, install, update and run it.
1. Ewido, a.k.a. avg anti-spyware If using winXP. or a-Squared free if using win98/ME.
2. Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition
3. Spybot Search and Destroy
4. Spywareblaster Don't install this until you are clean.

Have you downloaded, run any of the programs at 1, 2 or 3 above ?

What do you mean by "dompilot.dll still pops up can i delete with diableing system restore"

What pops up, the avast alert or something else ?

You only need to disable system restore if the file is in the system folders otherwise windows wil save it as a restore point, if it is in temp folders that shouldn't be required, however since you haven't stated where it is I can't say.

A google search for dompilot.dll returns many hits, this is just one of them, http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=96299.

If you are reunning Win 2000 or XP you have to temporarly turn off restore.  Go to Start/Settings/ Control Panel
on performace tab click File System
On the troubleshooting tab click Disable System Restore
Then Click Ok
Run a full scan of system then reboot.

Then activate restore with procedure above
when asked to restart windows click yes

avast should be able to deal with it, what option did you choose when avast detected it ?

The C:\System Volume Information folder is a part of the system restore function and as such is protected by windows, the only really effective way to clean infected _restore points is to disable system restore and reboot. This will clear ALL _restore points. Once you have disabled system restore, reboot, scan your PC again and if clear enable system restore.
