so i go to try and delete the rar and a box pops up saying "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program".
I've run another virus scan on the rar and it popped up saying infection found, this time it let me move the infected file to the vault, but i still cannot delete the rar as it says the file is open in another program.
I believe this "3xl-pwn.exe" has hopped out and hidden itself somewhere on the computer. I'm running 2 virus checks right now and its found an infection in the rar still, same name and directory as before. but i've moved it to the vault, plus when i run a scan on the rar itself it comes up as clean.... bit confusing.
I've had a search through the computer (search function) and it can't find an exe called 3xl-pwn.exe, plus I've had a look at the processed running and there arn't any unusual ones. So is it dormant? i presume not as its 'running in another program" as mentioned.
i need some serious help on this, if my girl finds out i've gotten a virus on her laptop she'll FLIP!
