Hi denkus1

Welcome to Avast forum. Thanks for the information

As you know, the infection detected was Worm.

So for this type of malicious, Microsoft has Malicious Software Removal Tool updates

So please get this tool by doing windows update and be safe

I would suggest you please don't use any other security softwares, because it would conflict with Avast.


Thanks
Have a wonderful day. Good Karma! :)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

If You want to use other malware removal tool. You can use MalwareBytes with Avast free from this http://filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/

Using Avast free + malwarebytes wont conflict.

Thanks  :)

Every version of Windows since XP has Malicious Removal Tool installed by default.

To run it just click on Start and access the Run box and enter MRT. Then following the screen prompts to perform a scan. MRT will indeed remove Conficker.
