I'm setting up a fresh installation of Windows on a little notebook for my daughter to use in college

It's running XP Pro, SP3. Office 2003. IE8 and Firefox 3. I've been using it a week now, testing and updating it and had just wrapped it up and cloned the drive for safety last night.

THEN Amazingly for such a fresh PC, Avira scanning this morning found "C:\WINDOWS\system32\SBUtils\SBWebCtl.dll " . It quarantined and then deleted the file.

And now it's blocking access for C:\System Volume Information\_restore{DAAD8284-5896-4B40-A753-8454BDC2E5A5}\RP84\A0008964.dll

It is detecting it as an Undesired Virus or Program- ADSPY/WindowEnhancer.F

I installed MWBAM in safemode and renamed it, started it in regular mode, updated, and it found nothing.
Ran SAS in reg mode and nothing.

I ran ESET Online Scanner as well, and noticed that when the scanner got to that same System Volume Information area, that Avira popped up and blocked the file again. Denied access. Eset says no threats found.

Downloaded Dr.Web. It's Quickscan finds nothing. But it also sets off Avira at a certain point for the same file.

Perhaps I should add that I do have Nero ImageDrive installed on this system. I forgot to disable it when I scanned.

ALSO: I've got SpywareBlaster running on this system as well. http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,14507747

Googling gives few hits for this file, but one German Avira user has a similar, unresolved detection:


Thanks for any help or info -
