    Ok so im opening a .rar file and my Avast anti virus detects a virus. So i quickly deleat it, do a system restore to yesterdays checkpoint, unplug my internet and restart my computer. One i rebooted I did a standard search and found nothing.

    I heard that a trojan cannot be deleated so i also used TDS-3 and Cleaner and also got nothing.

    is it really gone?

    highly likely it is gone, if you did not run the executable inside that infected archive.
    i'd be very surprised if there was a trojan that is detected by avast! that tds doesn't recognise..

    you did update tds before the scan?

    I was pretty new to TDS-3 so im not sure, i probally didnt

    well because I used avast first it may have already deleated it

    If you updated your avast program version today to 4.1.501 , then it probably a old false psitive bug in the unpackers, you can subbmit the file to avast to check :)

    Nearly EVERY trojan in existence can be cleaned with the right tools and procedure :) Opening a RAR archive means all files in the archive do actually get read like a table of contents in a book. Your antivirus scanner either protected you or was overly sensitive, either way nothing to worry about. I'd suggest submit the file for analysis too, so you can be sure.

    I wonder if the ! had anything to do with it, everything else looked normal
