I use Windows 7 on an HP laptop and Avast free antivirus.
I scheduled a boot time scan and it detected Win32:KillApp - W (pup) from C:\HP\BIN\EndProcess.exe
I didn't know what to do, so instead of deleting it, I moved it to chest. What should I do? I don't like to keep viruses in the chest. Is it safe to delete or is this an important file that HP needs? I heard it might be something it needs for restore.

Also, during a normal scan of a USB, it detected win32:Confi (wrm). However during the normal scan of the laptop as well as the boot time scan, this particular threat was not detected. Should I be worried about this too, or did Avast get it? I read it tends to keep coming back. I'm more concerned about Win32:KillApp - W.
