I have Avast as my anti virus program. I ran a boot scan and was able to delete all but three infected files that were in a windows folder. A few days later my computer prompted me to run another boot scan and now about 100 files in windows folders are infected. I'm not sure what to do so I won't ruin my operating system. It says the files are infected by win 32:Adware CWH {PUP} and PUP-gen {PUP} to name a few.
