Dont know if this is the best place But I was loading a Quanta notebook today and on there driver cd there were 42 different viruses on the cd we checked more than 1 So if you buy bare bone notebooks from Quanta you might want to be on the look out

Was windows installed with A/V running?

A/V software can be very agressive and detect system file changes as viruses. They would show up as false positives. If there is A/V on the computer disable it first.

As Candy said, definitely get the names of the suspect files.

May I suggest moving this to the security forum?

No I was loading the laptop from scratch I was just about finished when i took the driver cd to another machine to extract the dos driver from it to make a ghost disk.
and the antivirus on the other machine caught all the viruses

Wow, incredible. And the cd appears to be original and not just re-copies????
