i have just recently installed avast antivirus. the first scan came up with 2 viruses. i deleted the first one because it just infected a game. the second, i didnt, because i dont know what harm it could do to my computer.

the scan came up with:

c:/system volume information\_restore{05779BB2...SomeMoreNumbers....34.des is infected with Win32:sdbot_47

i didnt delete it yet. what can i do???

before installing avast, i have mcafee antivir installed but the virus didnt show up.

currently, these are on my computer: mcafee antivirus, avast, zone alarm, ad aware, spybot. i just downloaded all of these 2 days ago except for mcafee which i have had forever.
