I ran avira, and found a trojan. I can['t remember what virus was first found, before I ran the scan again. So, I ran it again, somehow running it twice at the same time.
When I read the reports the FIRST one said that a virus was found : pagefile.sys
[WARNING] The file could not be opened!
trois ans soutiennent, et il y a deux mois\S-1-5-21-1645522239-152049171-839522115-1003\Dc8.wma
[DETECTION] Is the TR/Dldr.WMA.Wimad.N.2 Trojan

The french phrase translates as "three years support, and two months ago" And was not there until I inserted a line from the report into Search Everything. It was C:\RECYCLER\ and I was trying to find its path. I'm serious, it changed into a phrase before my eyes!
Here is the warning/virus report from the 2nd scan of avira that ran concurrently:

[WARNING] The file could not be opened!
C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-1645522239-152049171-839522115-1003\Dc8.wma
[DETECTION] Is the TR/Dldr.WMA.Wimad.N.2 Trojan
[NOTE] The file was moved to '49b8f9d0.qua'!

This time, however, when I entered C:\RECYCLER\ into a search in Search Everything nothing happened.

Okay. So, what do you think? Thanks in advance,
Sharon

Perhaps my question isn't clear: having run all my scans, and theyve come back clean...avira, mbam, and sas...do I still have a problem, and
WHAT does that phrase signify?

The process of cleaning your computer may require temporarily disabliling some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

I also ran SAS and it came back clean.

I want to know what the phrase in French means, in my OP. I mean, I know what it means, but what is it doing there? Perhaps a different forum for this question?
thanks

This looks to me as Avira found the trojan and moved it to the Quarantine where it can no lomger harm your PC.
You should be able to confirm this by:
Open Avira, click Administration, click on Quarantine and see if the item is there.
I am only guessing at this but Avira is a French program. Perhaps it's a comment on the date of the file deletion or how long something has been in the Rcycler.
Recycler is a kind of hidden back-up for deleted files.

Thanks much, boopme! That answers my question. Certainly avira did find trojans, and quarantined them. I knew that much, I just was wondering if that phrase indicated some sort of insidious infection that was omnipotent!!
Knowing that avira is french takes the mystery out of it.
and 'recycler' is a norton file, which I will have to remove, as I have long removed norton.

Thanks and a tip o the hat to both of you!!

You're welcome from all of us here... If things are good then...
Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok"
  • Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.
