Rude, I think not, you are reading into it something other than I intended, the clutter relates to the originators wish not to clutter up was was supposed an informative not discussion topic (hense the quoted text). This was exactly what it was turning into, with yours, Bob's and my posts, nothing sinister or rude in that.

The "go back to bed" part is what made it rude. Whatever clearly you don't want to admit it. I'm not going to press you on it.

Meaning the topic can go back to slumber/bed where it had been for some considerable time.

My god, Lusher, some of us actually want to read useful topics. Stop acting like a noob and get over it. You're cluttering the posts with the arguing.

Now, how do I get the VBS:Malware [Script] out of my msn account? Avast only picked it up when I tried to view my e-mails. I did a full system scan with Avast and AVG and my pc is clean. Just to be on the safe side, I used Ad-ware and the Window Washer to clean my pc of all the junk our wonderful net piles up on it.. then I ran the scans again and still nothing. But when I get into my account I get the pop up saying that the virus is still there. I have no way of removing it, that I know of. Any suggestions?

Does Avast home and professional use the same scan engine and repair engine against malware or does Avast professional have better scanning engine and repair engine.

What should I do?
« Reply #22 on: March 06, 2008, 11:35:24 AM »
Hi Pavel,

I just scanned my notebook (running Windows XP Home with SP2) with avast! 4.7 Home Edition (great!!) and found the following:
Hi, my avast! Home 4.7 (manual scan) found the following and I, out of fear, just deleted it only to find out I should have not done so. What should I do now?

A0068312.dll - C:\System Volume Information\_restore{68DCCD3E-2073-4915-A5DC-A445A55876AD}\RP288

Win32:Trojan-gen {Other}

The suggested action was to move it to the "chest", which I did at first before deciding to delete it. I'm wondering what else to do now?

Thank you very much for your time and help.

All the best,

Open a new thread where you we can deal with your problem only.

A0068312.dll - C:\System Volume Information\_restore{68DCCD3E-2073-4915-A5DC-A445A55876AD}\RP288
Disable System Restore and reenable it again will delete the infected restore points.

The pagefile.sys should be excluded from scans by default, what type of scan where you doing ?

You don't say what the malware name was for the detection in the pagefile.sys file ?

If you can create a new topic in the Viruses & Worms forum and answer the above questions in that, we will help you there. This topic is instructional only, or it will get side tracked from it original purpose.

I suggest:

1. Disable System Restore and reenable it after step 3.
2. Clean your temporary files.
3. Schedule a boot time scanning with avast with archive scanning turned on.
4. Use SUPERantispyware and/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.
