  1. #1

    Default AVG

    of course i'm using AVG but a question if i may - the test result today quoted

    "viral infection found" - which was, from the info window,

    objects:-boot sector of disk C
    result:-reading error

    apparently i have version 7.1.362
    virus base 276.133.3/173

    doesn't make a lot of sense to me so was wondering if someone would enlighten me please

    Press "Print Screen" then paste into MS Paint or any other image program.

    Sounds like a boot sector virus, have you allowed AVG to remove the infection?

    yeah, that's what it is - the top 2 entries in results are

    object result status

    partition table (MBR) - change - changed
    boot sector of disk C - reading error - error

    in the object summary - infected = 1
    cleaned etc. = 0

    and also

    virus identified java/openstream
    C:\WINDOWS\.ipi_cache\jar\1.0\javainstaller.jar-31f07c88-3938fc65.zip

    but it didn't, so i tried to be a little inventive!! - the virus is called "java/openstream" so i remembered there is an icon on control panel - clicked it, opened the cache tab and cleared the cache - then in win explorer deleted the folder "ipi_cache" - no surprises yet, so maybe i've fluked it?? - guess another scan will be the real test

    Its good practice to flush the Java cache and then disable the feature.
