    My NOD32 found Win32Adware.WBug.A. It says I have to delete it myself. I can`t find it! NOD32 says it is in file C:\System Volume Information\_restore{ then there are a bunch of letters and numbers . I have looked and searched everywhere and I can`t find it. I can`t find where system volume information is to even look for Adware.Can anyone help?

    You're welcome. Make sure u do a follow-up scan after with NOD32 to be sure it's gone.

    FWIU- The WBug.A is the weatherbug add-on that is associated with AIM (AOL Instant Messenger). If you have AIM then that is the likely culprit/source of this adware. I have heard it is relatively harmless and you could get more info from the NOD32 area. But for some reason NOD32 picks up WBug.A as adware all the time.
