Hi. Need some answers. :(
« on: December 10, 2010, 12:35:59 AM »
Hey, I'm new here.

I had this virus on my computer a few days ago, and I couldn't rid it from my computer.
I tried everything, and I reformatted my comp and re-installed windows.

It was a win32:junkpoly-b[cryp] virus. Here's what happened.

I scanned my computer every night as usual, and it found the virus. I tried to send it to the vault, but when I clicked, it said the file was not found. I clicked on the vault, and it was there, so I thought nothing of it.

The next day, after the scans, it found TWO of those viruses, and the same thing happened with the first one. Tried to send to vault, and it said it coulndt fine the file, checked the vault, it said they were there. I researched more, and I found out it was a file corrupter and soon I would be finding hundreds of infected files.

What I am wondering is how did Avast let this thing corrupt my computer? Why didn't it catch it before it got into my files? The little pop-up in the right hand corner never showed up.

Could this be a super-bug?

Hi and welcome to forum, Krazyman.

You've already run Malwarebytes?
If not, download here if you don't have or run a full scan if you already have the program.
You can download Malwarebytes (Free or Paid), here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Post the results, when the scan is complete.

I already got rid of it. I just need my question answered.

It was win32:junkpoly-b[cryp].

I don't know where it infected, I just want to know why Avast didn't detect it early on.

Without knowing what was infected, there isn't any way to do any kind of research.
