    Hi everyone. I have a problem (again) :) I was running my AVG last night and got a virus detection. It said it could not be removed by healing and the entire infected object must be removed-it said to move it to the virus vault but when I try to I get an error message that says
    File c/restore/temp/A0060338.cpy cannot be removed. What now?

    This... c/restore/temp/A0060338.cpy... is in System Restore. The only way to remove it is to turn off System Restore to clear all restore points.


    Turn off System Restore:

    Click Start, Settings, and then click Control Panel.
    Double-click the System icon. The System Properties dialog box appears.

    NOTE: If the System icon is not visible, click "View all Control Panel options" to display it.

    Click the Performance tab, and then click File System.
    Click the Troubleshooting tab, and then check Disable System Restore.
    Click OK. Click Yes, when you are prompted to restart Windows.

    Once you have cleaned the virus or other problem from the computer, reenable System Restore by following these directions

    To enable Windows Me System Restore:

    Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
    Double-click System, and then click the Performance tab.
    Click File System, and then click the Troubleshooting tab.
    Uncheck Disable System Restore.
    Click OK. Click Yes, when you are prompted to restart Windows.

    Did what you said, restarted, ran AVG and said no viruses found. But if I look in test results at the old test it says still infected-is it? The new test is fine. I turned the system restore back on and restarted. Doesnt seem to be anything wrong with my computer either-its not doing anything that would suggest a virus.....
