What do I do?
« on: January 31, 2010, 06:40:34 PM »
avast was recommended to me by a friend and am I glad about it.  I just ran a scan this morning and the results showed a virus.  I ran two boot scans and this is the message I got.


Status:  ThreatWin32:Malware-gen
Results:  Error: The system cannot find the file specified

What can I do?  I have googled this and I am not finding anything helpful as to how to get rid of it.
