NTFS.SYS malware gen or false/positive infect ?
« on: December 23, 2012, 12:07:53 AM »
I not understand, avast in  SCAN after re-start the pc (scan in reboot mode) say there is
In WINDOWS/ERDNT/CACHE/NTFS.SYS

Is infect by  WIN32: Malware-Gen

But if I scan in normal mode this file  NTFS.SYS with avast is say none !

WHY this difference ? false/positive or avast error ?

This the screen in scan in normal mode:
