« on: March 07, 2008, 11:15:27 PM »
So i have avast and it did its usual scan, and it came up with a warning saying it found a trojan. but the trojan is in the avast program files. its under the integ folder. and i try to move it to chest or delete it but it wont let me because avast is open and running. i try closing avast but it still says the application is being used by another user. and i cant figure it out. can anyone help me? thanks

What is the infected file name, e.g. (C:\windows\system32\infected-file-name.xxx) ? 
There should only be one file avast.int in the avast4\data\integ folder (well there is in mine).

Check the avast! Log Viewer (right click the avast 'a' icon), Warning section, this contains information on all avast detections.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.4.6112 (build 24.4.9067.762) UI 1.0.803/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Take care... some Bagle infections could mess avast installation.
Maybe you should run on-line scanning like Kaspersky (very good detection rates) or BitDefender (free removal of the malware)
The best things in life are free.

Let's try something.

Please submit these files for analysis

To submit a file to virustoal, please click om this link

www.virustotal.com

copy and paste the following into the upload a file box (one at a time if more than one file is listed)

C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\DATA\integ\avast.int

scroll down a bit and click "send file", wait for the results and post then in your next reply.

edit tp add: I just tried mine, no detection, 3.2mb, created feb 18/07, modified mar 03/08, and it's an archive.

I thought the max was 10mb. Did you copy and paste the entire line?

Ok open windows explorer and navigate to the file, what does it says for size, date, etc.

try this scanner, similar to the other, I know it will acept 10mb files.

are you able to locate the same infection anywhere else on your machine? do a full scan and tell us what's the result... the file mentioned by you contains some data regions from other files, so there's a possibility to find the causality..
