No, System Care 3.2 is a system main/scanner that was recommended to me along with Avast by a computer guy and several engineering students after I had to wipe and reload. Here it is
http://majorgeeks.com/Advanced_SystemCare_3_d5927.html

I will download the malwarebytes scan. I tried the trendmicro housecall scan a few days ago, but it locked up and its files got corrupt in the middle of the scan.

Now, I have to turn off Avast before I do the malwarebytes scan, right?

No, they can run at the same time.  Malwarebytes isn't an Anti-virus program, it's anti-malware/spyware.  They don't conflict with each other.

I did a boot time scan twice after the most recent trojan(s) was found, and it turned up nothing. I didn't turn off the system restore before the virus infected files were deleted, but several system files are in the virus chest. There is no virus listed on any of them. The System Care scan was performed after the last clean Avast boot time scan.

Should I turn off system restore, dump those system files in the chest, download malwarebytes, run it, and see?

The files listed under system files in the chest are backup files placed there by Avast and should not be deleted.

Yeah, I should have said that.  Thanks Marc, I missed it in rosebud's post.

HELL! ARGH!

I just ran a malwarebytes scan and it found the following:

Rootkit.agent.V

Four objects infected

2 in C: System restore, 1 in windows syst.32, and one in windows service pack 3


Should I start another thread?

That's a good idea, we're straying away from the original post.

Hi Rosebud -

If those files you mentioned above are in the "System files" section of the virus chest, leave them there. Avast put those file copies there in case they are needed for restoring imoprtant system files.
