removing a threat
« on: May 09, 2013, 06:46:10 PM »
Avast intercepeted a threat labeled ( WIN32:Hupigon-ONX(trj), When given the option to remove to virus chest, it would not do this because it noted that this threat was part of another program. when I tried to delete this threat , this didnt work either because after the recommened reboot the threat was still present and it was recommending a reboot.? Is there something I'm missing here or do I have a bigger problem that avast cant help me with. I'm running win.XP..,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Gofour :-\
