hi and welcome glenn

if by repair you actually mean "restore" file then it can simply be removed by de-activating system restore (which dumps your restore files) then re-activating system restore. :)

As far as I know, its "win repair vaip". I have run thru a few things with her already,turning off sys restore,setting up bootscan with Avast and restarting in safemode...!
Pretty much what everyone else has gone thru.

maybe you could get the full path to the "win repair vaip" file thats infected and submit it to an online scan somewhere(see REJZOR`s security site)

 :) Perhaps you should try the good & FREE "Ewido"
    available at www.ewido.net/en !? This program
    "specializes" in detecting & removing trojans, worms,
     dialers, etc .

You could also check the offending/suspect file at: Jotti - Multi engine on-line virus scanner if any other scanners here detect them it is less likely to be a false positive. You can't do this with the file in the chest, you will need to move it out.
Or VirusTotal - Multi engine on-line virus scanner

Thank you for your help! Its seems to be fixed,between Avast and Ewido it has done the trick................so far.
 FYI it was the "win\repair\vgaip" file not vaip. I ran disk cleanup on her pc and they had over 88,000 temp files on it.
Talk about not cleaning house!!! Again thank you to the AVAST team for all your help.
