    Avast! found W32:Trojan-gen. on my pc and I cannot remove it.

    It was found here:

    c:\_RESTORE\ARCHIVE\FS99.CAB1A0032296.CPY

    twice.

    I try to delete it, move it to the chest, repair it, and nothing. It says "Access is denied, cannot process."

    Is there a removal tool I can use to get rid of this?

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also---when I run Adaware and Spybot it comes up clean.

    The trogen is in one of your system restore points.
    You will have to turn off system restore

    Don't forget to turn it back on again and be aware that this will delete all your restore points.

    Well I'm running trend micro's online scan right now, and it's found another one:

    TROJ SIBOCO.A Says "Cannot Access"???

    The trogen was in one of your restore points where it cannot be reached by your AV. When you disabled system restore the restore point containing the trogen was deleted taking the trogen with it.
