My virus protection keeps finding something what they call greyware, and says they cant remove. It is called A0020514.EXE A search in Google shows in French and Turkish (nothing in English) something about this Virus. Can you tell me how to get this virus from my computer?

All the google results point to C:\System Volume Information\_restore... Is this where the infection is on your system? If so, it's safe to ignore as long as you don't use System Restore. If you use System Restore you'll install the file back onto your system.

To get rid of it, you'll have to turn off System Restore (I recommend rebooting) and then turn it back on - that will delete all the System Restore points in the C:\System Volume Information folder.

If it's not in the C:\System Volume Information folder, then please let us know where it's located.

Thanks for the fast reply John,
It is in indeed C:\System Volume Information\_restore.

How do you reboot? Is it the same as shutting down you computer and starting it again?
