Hi i just returned my computer to factory setting reinstalled avast and ran a boot time scan and it found 8 infected files. How could this be?
the files were alldeleted during the boot scan. But they were something to do with a thing called treaure island contained within swSetup\hpgob and then system volume information\restore there were 4 files of each type to do with treasure island. Avast called them up as trojan win 32. I have checke and there is an hp game called treaure island but its not on my computer.

Please Help!
