Trojan Problems
« on: February 01, 2007, 08:49:00 PM »
I have a Trojan on my pc, (Win32:Zlob-TZ [Trj]) and when it was found a window popped up, giving me 3 options. In bold it says RECOMMENDED ACTION: MOVE TO CHEST
When I select the move to chest option, It says CANNOT PROCCESS. VIRUS CHEST SERVER NOT RUNNING. RPC COMMUNICATION FAILED.
I was wondering what that means and what I could do to fix the problem.
Also, if anyone has any tips for removing this virus that would be greatly appreciated.

Hello :)

Are you running another AV with avast?
Have you ever had another AV installed and if so what and how did you remove it?

Please try repairing avast! installation:  Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove
Then choose Repair function in the pop up window (Repair) (you need to be online to do the repair) ;)

And then try a boot-time scan.

If that doesn't work try, uninstall, reboot, install, reboot.

A boot-time scan as mentioned should be OK as it is done before windows loads so I think the RPC error shouldn't be an issue.

Usually associated with ZLOB detection.
