    Hello guys! i've been so intrigued with NOD32 so installed the 30 day trial of Nod 32.

    As it was scanning it found a Win32Trojan and Win32 Adware in 2 files in my C:System Volume Information folder (a hidden folder in Windows)....

    the two files are in
    C:\System Volume Information\_restore\{84.......}\RP524\A00698835.exe
    -this contains the Win32/TrojanDownloader
    and
    C:\System Volume Information\_restore\{84.......}\RP524\A00698836.cfg
    -this has the Win32/Adware.Broadcap

    Is it safe to delete these files? or should i try and just clean it? i just wanted to make sure coz its in one of the hidden folders. Thanks guys!

    thanks snowbound,

    I actually deleted it before disabling system restore...i then disabled system restore and then scanned my system again. It seem to have deleted the Trojan and Adware even though i didnt disable System restore. I'll scan my system again in a few days to see if those were really deleted.
