    Hi guys,

    On an in-depth scan, I found a virus called Win32/Adware.WhenU.SaveNow. The message given is detailed below.

    File M:\System Volume Information\_restore{00B1BA34-CB3E-416E-AF65-E726B9905BCE}\RP114\A0020792.exe is infected with application Win32/Adware.WhenU.SaveNow. The file can be deleted. It is strongly recommended that you back up any crucial data before you proceed.

    There are two issues here.

    1. Why does NOD32 not give me the option of deleting it through NOD itself ? I was given the option of 'LEAVE' only and COPY TO QUARANTINE did not seem to help.

    2. As the above folder is a system folder, I cannot get into the damn thing to delete it manually. So far, Windows is saying that the folder containing the virus is actually empty. So I am stuck

    Lastly I noticed that if I highlighted on the folder, right-clicked on the folder and scanned for viruses - nothing showed up.. :blink:

    Am puzzled - can someone please help me...

    Moggy B
