I am using AVG Free for my AV. It keeps picking up win32/hidrag in a system volume information file. It tells me to run my scan to remove it. So I ran the AV and nothing. So I decided I would run the scan on the SVI folder directly. Still nothing. Yet AVG keeps insisting that I have it. I also ran housecall with no luck.

Any ideas?

I have been searching for info for a few hours to no avail. I found one forum and recognized the folder name but the rest was in spanish.....

Otherwise all the other hits show up a relation to w32.jeefo but, it shows no more on the win32/hidrag part...
