Lost files due to RECYCLER VIRUS
« Reply #120 on: February 20, 2012, 07:17:30 PM »
Hi,

My external hard disk got infected with the $recycler virus. After an avast scan several .exe folders were infected. I placed them in the virus chest but then I found out that I lost all my folders on my HD!!!

Is there any way to undo the previous scan or restore the infected folders??? (restoring the seperate folders didn't help as they just put back empty folders on my HD)
Can anyone please help me? At the moment I'm more concern about losing all my documents than fixing the virus!!

Thanks!

Why avast is not working on repair option?

RejZoR and myself, and some other users have been asking this same question to Avast over & over for a long time, and we never got a straight answer from Avast is WHY! they're not working on repair option compare to Kaspersky and Symantec (Norton).

For another words my hands are completely tied :-X

All you can do is follow this options from Tech see post link:- http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=5373.msg723268#msg723268

Edit: IF you have any further problem PLEASE start a new topic.
