VBS: Malware Gen - Avast not letting me move or delete files
« on: February 22, 2017, 05:05:59 AM »
Good evening everyone,

Let me preface this by saying I'm not the model computer user. I only got worried about possible infections when nearly every page I visited would pop up with the 'threat has been blocked' message from avast for the virus in the title. I ran a scan and found over 90 infected files (where they came from I have no idea), however Avast isn't letting me do anything with them. I try to delete but nothing happen. I try 'move to Chest', but again no response. I've tried the other options as well but to no avail. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you so much in advance,
Lalaine

Hello, im having the same issue. I have restored my pc back to november, then i update virus defs and rescan. Avast shows no infections! Then i update to the latest program, rescan, and the virus reappears. So either;

1. Avast older program did not pick up this virus

2.  Something is amiss with the latest update/program

Can you please advise as i run virus scans regularly, so to have an infected pc back to november isnt right, unless windows 7 system restore is useless
