Hey everyone, got a question for you.

I use Avast! Antivirus Home edition, whi is updated nearly daily, and I run full scans about every week or so.

The last few scans have returned this error message (the scan completed, then gave the error):

C:\WINDOWS\winstart.bat [E] File is offline - it is currently not available. (42006)


Should I be concerned?

winstart.bat is a file typical for Windows ME/9x. I would suggest you
In normal mode, run an online antivirus check from at least two and preferably three of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro Housecall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
This scanner from Trend does not require an Active X to run.

1. Detects and removes malware ( viruses, worms, trojans, etc. )
2. Detects and removes grayware and spyware
3. Restores damage caused by malware to your system.
4. Notifies about vulnerabilities in installed programs and connected network services.
5. Multi-platform support for: Windows, Linux, Solaris.
6. Easy-to-use with the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

Well, I have been doing a search on SecureWin32.exe and all the infections which were seen also were trough a variety of anti-virus programs including AVG Free which I am currently running.

There is little information on this file but it is considered to be bad.
The larger part of your infections came in the Temp Internet Files folder which you regulary should clean out.

I would suggest an additional scan with Trend and see whether you come up clean now

Just finished Trend, it cleaned out a few things.

It just goes to show that even the most cautious among us are susceptible

Which things? If after the Bitdefender Trend cleaned out some more you might be still infected. I suggest you post a HJT log and see what comes up

Well, I started to get BSOD's at random intervals so I did a fresh install.

All's well!
