hi all :)
I have a problem, certain Win32:Spyware-gen keep alerting my Avast from time to time (every few hours), and it reports that a random named *.scr (screensaver file, ofc u know it already :thumbup2:) is infected.
I delete infected file, and it's okay for a hour or two, and then it just pops out avast back with warning.
hijack log appended bellow

I do believe that my problem is solved. AV didn't report anything for a week or so.
