Scan Report
« on: September 04, 2004, 03:32:15 PM »
I recently received help from the forum about reinstalling avast after having 3 free months of Norton.  All seemed to go well and I thank all.

I always do a deep scan.  The first time revealed no virus etc. but did show some corrupt java files.  I didn't know what this meant.  But as I was having no trouble using anything with the java I didn't get excited.

My second scan report showed the same thing of course.  But added information showed something could not be scanned because of password protection.  It was something to do with Spybot. (I had changed from Adaware to Spybot since my first scan, as when I used Adaware I crashed).  Another bit of info that was on the report that could not be scanned was something about some WildTangent. I found that was some game that was installed by the manufacturer.  I never have and never will play those games.  I have no idea what this report is telling me.

I would have sent the scan report with this post except when I closed out avast I could not relocate it.
Now I know this must seem confusing but I am trying to describe the best I can.
 
Since no infection was found, should I not be concerned with the report?
Am I going to see that same information every time?  
Should I do another scan and send you the report for evaluation?

I once read a comment that I believe was written by Technical saying there were no stupid/silly questions.  So I appreciate a response to my simple question.  Perhaps it will prevent the need for a difficult question later.

Hi emma,
Your right Technical did say that in one of his posts.
Please help us help you.
What version of Avast! are you using
What vps version?
What OS?
What exactly is the error message? (If you are getting one.)
etc. etc.
Unless we take care of the cause for those error messages, they will definitly always show up.

XP with all updates except sp2
avast home edition installed 8\27\04
not sure what you mean by vps version-will send if you tell me how to find

Don't think I am getting an error message.
I rummaged and found the scan data and hope this helps. It is long but I am sending it.  When I first tried to send, it said the file was too long.  So I cut the part that was repetitious.  The Spybot\wildtangent  thing went on for pages.

Thanks, Bob.  I read many of your replies.  They are always helpful, many times humorous, and best of all humane.

Hi emma,
What you have here are a whole bunch of either password protected files created by Spybot S&D which are backups of files removed from the system during scans.
If your system is running fine and there aren't any errors, these files can be deleted.
To delete them, Open S&D select Recovery then select all of the files that you want to delete by placing a check mark next to them and then selecting Purge Selected Items. Answer YES to the are you sure question.
Close S&D.

The rest are all currupted Compressed Files and should be Deleted.

The following item is the only item I'm not sure about, because it looks like a Folder but there isn't any file listed or associated with it?????
Could that be a typo?
If not, what are the properties of that folder? ( right click and select properties)
Let us know how you make out.
Oh and thanks for the complement. ( You know what they say about flattery.) (I also know what they say about self praise.) ;D
Please excuse any spelling errors. :-[

I took care of the files in S\D and that took care of those.

I then did a new avast scan as seen below.
I am not sure of the next part of the directions.  When I R click on the files within the scan result box, there are some alternatives one of which is delete. Is this where you mean for me to delete? Or do I have to go somewhere else?
And would you specify again which ones it is OK to delete.

(Would you believe that I am the designated helper for avast for several friends?  Rather frightening isn't it.)

Doin' my best
emma

Hi again emma
Very good so far. The rest is easy. Every single file listed is a corrupt file and there fore not of any use to any one or any program. You can delete them all.

I wouldn't suggest to delete those files - they are part of the java runtime. It's better to simply ignore them.

Just checked here with JVM versions 1.4.2_01 and 1.4.2_05. I don't have a META-INF folder and Java is perfectly working.

I suggest something that you could call "inbetween Bob and Igor" ;D

You are using a older version of the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) I suggest removing it. (control panel > software > add/remove) and install the latest one from http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

After removing, check your harddisk and make sure the entire java folder is gone. If not, remove it manually.

If the META-INF folder is needed on your system, the new version will take care of it/create it again.
