renee_dd, thanks for the link! The detection occurs inside there indeed. I'll have it checked.

ktl, what virus was reported in works.exe? That same one?

Igor,

both infected files have been deteced with the following virus:

Win32:SdBot.33...

Also, I'm a bit scared about doinig the "system restore" thing recommended earlier.  Am I going to lose things I have installed if I restore my computer to an "earlier" time, as my computer referred to it?  I am attending an online course and have tons of things that I need on the computer, including software downloads.  I cannot afford to lose any of this, nor do I have the time to reinstall all of it...

Renee, if I'm reading Igor's post correctly, well, I think it's not good to leave a live link to an infected file here...
People could click unadvertisely in it  :(

Ktl, if the system restore is infected you will 'bring back' the infection when you try to restore your 'things' of an earlier time...
Maybe you can clean both of them (in the computer and in the system restore) at a time, but, only maybe... we can't be sure.
System restore could fail in most times when you need a 'deep' restore back (programs). It's not a tool for that. You need a backup tool. Microsoft is selling apples intead of oranges with this tool  >:( :P

Hi,

Since I started this thread, I figured I'd give an update.

My Avast program just updated it's virus database. So I did another thorough scan of all my drives, and it found no infected files.

Also "wksv7std.sbs" is no longer detected as a trojan.

So, I guess all is good?

Seems ok...
Did you scan with a-squared, ewido or Spyware Terminator (trojan removers)?

I sure did, I did a full system scan with ewido.. and it came up clean (except for a few tracking cookies which I deleted).
