avast detected 66 files infected with malware gen 2. I dont know i was not doing anything that could get me infected the last i remember, though avast said it blocked a threat on Kisscartoon.se thats when i decided to scan with all my security software. But none of them found anything it was looking, like i was clear until i did a scan full system scan with avast i was thinking you know avast wont find anything, but i would scan just in case thats when it detected 66 infected files and the virus was vbs malware gen 2 malwarebytes, did not detect it Hitman pro did not detect it Adwcleaner did not detect it only avast did but now im worried if my whole system is infected including the motherboard and i also would like to know what caused the infection and if a factory reset could remove the threats and how i could avoid the threat again

Hello,

First update your avast program and then re-scan.

 

This was reported as a False Positive yesterday and can be viewed on the avast forum.

Now check if this matches your problem (others here also reported it)..
