I scanned with AVG and found Trojan horse Zbot.CIJ,

 

I LOOKED IN THE DESIGNATED FOLDER BUT DID NOT FIND IT ?

Does that mean the Local Folder has been deleted altogether ?

 

I recently installed Windows Mail, is my functionality effected by this, . .

My mail seems to be working ok, . . but where is the file Local S . . ??

 

Where did it come from in the first place?

As I said in your other topic...The detection(s) was on a file with an .eml extension. EML file extensions are primarily associated with Outlook Express but they are also used by other email clients. The Windows Live Mail folder is used for email storage...your screenshot does not indicate the local folder was deleted just the .eml file within it.

If there is nothing important in there, you may want to delete all messages in Windows Mail.

How to Purge Deleted Messages in Windows Mail or Outlook Express

After doing that, you can download and run AVG's Win32/Zbot removal tool (rmzbot.exe).

Thanks again Quietman, . .

I'll work on that today , . . .

 

but why can I not find the folder as stated previous, . . Also, . .I am attempting to clean up my partitioned drives,

although I am proceeding cautiously, I have located in search my Outlook Express folder, since I will no longer be using it 

I will delete it, . . .

 

however instead of deleting it from the search, .  I went to the address but can not find a Local Folder ?

 

F:\Documents and Settings\Jople\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{1F936368-EA77-4891-9F9E-30E433DAC4F9}\Microsoft

 

Is it a hidden folder ?  I guess that's it ?

 

If so Please except my apology for taking up your time about that .
