AVG Virus Scan keeps popping up with this messege.

Could Be Infected Startpage
is found in file
C:\System Volume Information\_restore {A5D9CCDE-791E-4D4F-821A-ADE141134902}\RP36\A0004086.hta

Hi mudfoot,
You're in pretty good shape. Don't worry about that file that AVG keeps flagging. Your system in not presently infected. But at one time it was and there is a backup to the infected file/registry setting in System Restore. If you were to run System Restore & chose that particular restore point, you could get reinfected. All you have to do to prevent this from happening is to turn off System Restore--that will delete ALL of your Restore Points. How to do that is in our tutorial Disabling System Restore.. So I suggest you do that--disable System Restore & then after you reboot, turn it back on again. If your system is clean, then AVG won't flag that file anymore.

Before you do that you have one item that needs fixing with HijackThis. Close all windows, put a check by the following item & hit "Fix Checked". Close HT then reboot.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SysUpd] C:\WINDOWS\sysupd.exe

Then navigate to C:\WINDOWS & delete sysupd.exe.

Let us know how it goes or if you encounter any problems.

The thing about people

is they change

when they walk away.--Mipso
