After using Autoruns program to see if I could tune up the startup on the laptop, I have downloaded Avast anti virus, installed it, and performed a boot time scan which has detected a threat (the Zone Alarm security suite/anti virus program previously installed did not find anything).

It found win32 Chancrypt virus/worm. C:System Volume Information_restore{145A78D9-30F3-4441-A76F-9F54405CDEA6}RP112.

The name in the Avast "virus chest" was: A0145871.exe. Last changed 8/4/2004 (not sure if that was needed info) Transfer time 10/1/2007 ( Day I found it and quarantined it)



I do not know what this is. I assume that it infected a restore point. I only quarantined it because I was not sure if deleting it was the best course of action.

I have repeated all the steps you had mentioned earlier (except Smitfraudfix and the installer cleanup utility)

What should I do?

Thanks again for your help very much appreciated. :thumbsup:
