Quote from Technical.

You speak about VRDB : how can I find whether a file has been repaired using VRDB ?

Another question : how can I find which files are stored in the VRDB ?

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely.

When you choose the restore function of the Chest in the version 4.5 (not released yet), you will see the following message boxes:

File was marked to be repaired during the following system start... (not an exact match)
or
File was successfully repaired... (not an exact match)

avast tried to repair but there were not information into the VRDB, so, the exact match won't be achived. But, if the information were stored into the VRDB you will see:

File was marked to be repaired during the following system start.
or
File was successfully repaired.

Another question : how can I find which files are stored in the VRDB ?

All repairable files are in the VRDB after an VRDB update. Click on Generate VRDB Now!. To configure VRDB, see avast settings link on my signature.  ;)

Hope this help.

Hello,

I always don't understand why the result is not the same when I scan a specific folder from main window or when I scan a specific infected file :
report of scan for c:\windows : 2 files infected but repaired
( autoclk.exe included )
scan autoclk.exe infected but unable to repair.

Is there differences of scan between these 2 methods.

About VRDB, I just want to know whether it's possible to see which files are in the VRDB.

Should not be... Are you scanning in both cases with Home version (not ashQuick.exe or the Context Menu of Windows Explorer)?

I never heard it was possible...  ::)

First I've scanned c:\windows from main menu of Avast Home. Report : 2 file infected ( autoclk.exe and another )but successfully repaired

Then from Windows Explorer, right click on autoclk.exe to see some properties and then scan. Result : unable to repair.

It's well know that the 'report' hability of ashQuick.exe (right click on Windows Explorer) is different from the Home (and Pro) version, for instance, locked files (or passworded files) could be reported as clean by ashQuick.exe. In your case, it seams different (?), because the 'report' refers to cleaning and not scanning  ::)
It will be necessary the presence of a the Alwil programmers here  ::)

So is it a lagitimate file or not? That site doesn't give any info as far as removal or anything?

Bob -

I can't be sure how legitimate that exe is. Take a look at this page also at the same site:

http://www.2-spyware.com/file-autoclk-exe.html

The description is of a helpful exe for some people. Yet, other information on this page says it is related to spyware. It seems that almost anyone can log-in to this site and add or otherwise modify information. I could be wrong about that since I did not actually log-in.  

I know very little about this site. At the bottom of that page, I clicked on a link for ESolutions (owner/operator/maintainer) and got this page:

http://www.esolutions.lt/

The above link is to a page of links that appears to be legitimate but who really knows.    ???   Most of the links are not related to the same subject of computer security.

Anyway, since it is listed as a utility and not an actual Windows program, it is probably safe to get rid of it. I got to this info by using Google. Many of the page results came up in foreign languages to me. I only know english. Perhaps some others here can check out some of the other Google results for autoclk.exe?

Since http://www.esolutions.lt/  is based in Italy, I assume most of the info would be in Italian.

Actually, Bob, those pages were in english. The non english pages were included in the results from my Google search for autoclk.exe, but, the 2 links I gave were a Lithuanian site for 2-spyware.com ... lol ... who's site is owned/operated/maintained by an Italian company, ESolutions. I'm guessing ESolutions is a webpage/webspace hosting company.
