    My boss's computer was recently infected by the Infostealer.phax virus and after I got rid of them, I ran Kaspersky's online scanner to check and this is what it came up with:

    C:\Documents and Settings\desk9\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst/Personal Folders/Deleted Items/15 Jan 2006 10:30 from [email protected]/[From "Chase Support" ][Date Sun, 15 Jan 2006 19:25:44 +0900]/html Infected: Trojan-Spy.HTML.Chasfraud.c skipped

    C:\Documents and Settings\desk9\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst/Personal Folders/Deleted Items/15 Jan 2006 10:30 from [email protected] Infected: Trojan-Spy.HTML.Chasfraud.c skipped

    C:\Documents and Settings\desk9\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst/Personal Folders/Deleted Items/12 Jan 2006 04:31 from [email protected]:payPal Account Suspens.html Infected: Trojan-Spy.HTML.Paylap.je skipped

    C:\Documents and Settings\desk9\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst Mail MS Mail: infected - 3 skipped


    I looked in the folders where they're supposed to be but can't find them. How do I find these files?

    Just purge the deleted items folder in Outlook as that's where they are all located. :)
