Avast won't move virus??
« on: July 15, 2004, 01:39:28 AM »
I did a thorough scan of my computer, Avast picked up on a virus, Win32Startpage-006(Trj), in c:\windows\system\mfplay.dll, but it says it cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. What do I do now? just delete it. Thanks Paul
Hows' it goin, EH!!

hi,

try moving or deleting it in SafeMode (F8-Boot)

also read "VirusRemoval" below on how to secure your system better, and here:

Avast finally removed virus today!!  I've been trying for a few days to get rid of it. To be honest, I kind of deserved it, I was trying another vendors anti-virus. I WON'T MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN!!! (DUH). Regards, and thanks for the advice.
