Cannot repair files
« on: September 22, 2003, 09:43:08 PM »
I've got some problems with Avast:
- it cannot repair infected files by viruses.
- it reveals a virus also inside of its installation program...
Well, it's kind of ridiculous...

Mcafee 4.0 is damn old. What engine and Dat-Version do you use? With engine 4.2.60 and DAT 4294 no Problems here. What does Mcafee reports?

It was in a computer of a friend of mine. I´ll try to post this information...
Btw, it was in a download of the file (Donwload Engine of McAfee).
The only I know it the dat file is updated (I suppose)...  ;D

The version is the 4.1 Professional and the viruses are located in the moved data directory...
So it's supposed to be like a qurantine directory where infected files are stored...
