~200 infected files, avast can't delete them. Help??
« on: December 13, 2016, 12:51:54 AM »
So I ran a full scan on my PC, and it found 200 or so files that were infected (yikes!). All of them are in C:\Users\ME\AppData\Local\Temp\(some file name)\infinst.exe. But when I try to delete them, it gives me an error: The system cannot find the path specified (3).

Here's an picture of what it looks like: http://i.imgur.com/vQvxeAu.png

Any ideas?  :(

This usually mean that the file(s) are already gone
If you reboot and scan again, do you get same message?
