    iirc "Not A virus" can be adware or a tool. What are the files and where are they located?

    If you wanted to upload the infected system restore points you have to go to start,my computer,double click on the icon of your hard disc after that go to tools,folder options,view,uncheck hide protected operatingsystem files confirm by pressing on yes. You have also to enable show hidden files and folders
    Now you will find a folder called system volume information. Rightclick on it choose properties,security select your username and choose for allow when checking the box. The rest of the file you can find.

    It could be legit programs that could be misused.

    DIGStream = ESPN software to play videos at ESPN.com. 100% harmless.

    It comes standard with HP computers, however I dont think ESPN uses it anymore. They have changed over to a flash based system. DIGStream first started out as a way to automatically download .WMV video files in the background to a temporary folder on the computer. I think C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\DIGStream\. Something like that.
    Then they upgraded it and made it use encrypted WMV dat files. Then it changed to a flash system for downloading the flash movies, and now it is just like your standard YouTube service, no extra software (besides Adobe Flash) required.

    Its harmless and with the state of ESPN video today, this software can be safely uninstalled from your PC using the add/remove programs. I think it shows up as either DIGStream, or ESPN something or other.

    Correct me if I'm wrong,but aren't System Volume/restore items harmless?
    Couldn't they be flushed by deactivating sytem restore?

    Well, if System Restore backed up an infected file, and the infected file wasnt cleaned initially, then there will be multiple copies for each restore point which has the file.

    But yes, your assessment is correct. In their current location they are probably harmless. And if the user disables System Restore they will just be flushed.
