    I just bought Extendia Antivirus AVK Pro at CompUSA for $19.99 and the KAV engine found this: from file A0004279.CPY in C:\_RESTORE\TEMP

    It can't disinfect or delete it
    It says it can't move it into quarantine but when I check there it is in quarantine.

    Is this something to be worried about?

    It's a batch trojan and it can result in false postives.
    This file proberly contains some code of deltree <dir>.
    Do not worry about this - its in the system restore - just disable and reenable system restore (xp) then is all ok :D

    Yes, that will empty the system restore folder (you lose any backup points, sorry)

    The KAV BAT engine is fairly strong.. the name suggests the file in question must contain

    Deltree /Y

    Not unreasonable to detect something with that in it generically, Wormguard sure does :D False alarm or not (they are detecting it by signature), thats a batch file I would like to be warned about..

    Thanks for the replys!

    I have Windows ME(unfortunately).What is the proper way to disable and reenable system restore?

    Thanks again...

    I'm so very glad there are pc knowledgable people who are kind enough to give out advice for those of us who aren't as computer literate. :)

    Wilders has the best and most informative forum on the net.

    My thanks to all...
