    Default Detected a virus

    Hi,

    AVG 6.0 Free Edition just detected a virus in the Shared Folder of Kazaa Lite. It has removed the virus and the Test Results it says Healed OK.
    But Iv'e heard that this program just quarantines the virus?? does that mean it's still somewhere on my computer, just in a different destination???
    Why doesn't it destroy the virus?, how can I completely remove it then??
    btw virus defined as Worm/Sddrop, anyone else had this one before?

    Thanks

    It will only quarantines the virus if it can't clean it. By putting it into quarantine, it neutralizes it anyway.

    Haven't had that one, but with Kazaa, expect more uninvited guests.
    May be wise to utilise an anti-trojan program as well. The only AV that is realatively strong in trojans is Kaspersky. But more a more specialised program would be advisable.
    An anti-trojan scanner can be obtained from here

    Hi,

    I keep getting this message that a worm is located in C:\System Volume Information. I can't open this folder, and it says there is nothing in it. AVG, an online Symantec scan, and that little A squared trojan scan program all didn't pick up anything.
    Does anyone have any tips?, I'm starting to worry a little bit now.

    Thanks
