Set Avast to run in silent mode. Let us know if it helps/solves anything.

If you choose the Silent Mode, when you click on the buttom, maybe the infected file was already deleted  ::)

Can you schedule a boot-time scanning?
Start avast! > Right click the skin > Schedule a boot-time scanning
Select for scanning archives.
Boot.

It will be good running SpyBot and Ad-aware too... You're infected  :'(

Eric, it's becoming a mistery...  :-\ ???
Is the attached file (the infected one) a big one or an archive file?

Hi Eric, you were saying that you get a number of those:

AAVM - scanning error: ClientRqDispatchThread: OpenEventsAndMapping failed - client probably died, 00000159.

in the Event Log. Each such an error should be preceded by another one (a different message, such as "OpenEventsAndMapping: xxxx failed"). Do you see any such a message? If so, can you post their exact form?

Or even better, can you post the contents of the file <avast>\data\log\error.log?


BTW aren't you, by any chance, using the Fast User Switching feature of Windows XP? Or a Remote Desktop?


Thanks
Vlk
