I suggest a boot-time scanning:
Start avast! > Right click the skin > Schedule a boot-time scanning.
Select for scanning archives.
Boot.
If infected files are found, it's safer to send them to Chest instead of deleting them.
This way you can further analysis them.

For infected system files my suggestion is ignore/do nothing and then report here.

Download HiJackThis and post a log if a boot scan doesn't help.

good move
Boot scan finds things regular scan does not and vice versa

I'd run a malware bytes anti malware scan to see "the other side of the coin"
you may know this already but for other lurkers
with MBAM  update and scan then put a check next to baddies
then
Click REMOVE  a backup will be made
post the log back here
then we can decide if a hjt is necessary yet or try something else
I would suggest a HJT eventually

Well, to be sure you're clean, I suggest:

1. Disable System Restore and then reenable it again.
2. Clean your temporary files.
3. Schedule a boot time scanning with avast again with archive scanning turned on. If avast does not detect it, you can try DrWeb CureIT! instead.
4. Use SUPERantispyware, MBAM or Spyware Terminator to scan for spywares and trojans. If any infection is detected, better and safer is send the file to Quarantine than to simple delete than.
5. Test your machine with anti-rootkit applications. I suggest avast! antirootkit or Trend Micro RootkitBuster.
6. Make a HijackThis log to post here or, better, submit the RunScanner log to to on-line analysis.
7. Immunize your system with SpywareBlaster or Windows Advanced Care.
8. Check if you have insecure applications with Secunia Software Inspector.

The avast anti-rootkit scan first happens 8 minutes after boot, when doing an on-demand scan, if you select the Standard or Thorough scan sensitivity the anti-rootkit scan is a part of that scan.

Note: depending on your OS win9x, winME, don't support this rootkit function.
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

Do you have the file name/paths? Are they into SuperAntispyware quarantine?
Maybe you could collect them to send to virus (at) avast (dot) com for analysis.

can u tell me if avast anti virus scan  checks automatically for rootkit virus or do i need a seperate program
Like David said, it's inside of avast, automatically run.

I haven't but I know a friend who might, google.com ;D

You should first do your investigation (into any security program) though it seems you have, before doing any scan, how do you know that it isn't a rogue program otherwise, that free scan could just be a hook to suck you in.

This is a good place to start looking when considering an anti-spyware, etc. http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm.

Hmm... it's not even listed on http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm
More info and discuss: http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6132_102-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=300732&messageID=2808979

I would suggest SuperAntispyware, SpywareTerminator, MBAM.

I use firefox and an add-on called WOT, it maintains a database of sites and their trusworthyness, etc. and a google search for spyzooka shows many of the sites are suspect, so it would also depend on the location you went for this scan.

i went to the origional site i read reviews on it and didnt see anything that gave me concern i was looking to see how much it cost thats when i saw the offer of a free scan before you buy i hope i didny make a bad desicion it told me there was no virus or infections after that scan i ran all my scans again with avast  spydoctor and superspyware and they didnt find any virus or infections either so hopefully all is well i will hang off on buying till i find out more thanks for letting me know
