    o_O Good Day. I just finished doing Kapersky's free online scan. I received an unpleasant result saying this file - C:\System Volume Information\_restore{E96C3065-FA98-4855-80FD-A09C527B7084}\RP582\A0115079.dll - was infected with this - Infected: not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.HideOne.b -.

    I tried using my PC's search (In hope of finding & deleting this sucker) feature with all kinds of Permutations of this file # but in all cases it came up with no finds. Any ideas as to how to search, find & get rid of this thing! Many thanks, Deca

    Hello,

    The file is in your System Restore.

    Just disable it then renable and that should take care of it. Make sure to create a new restore point after that.

    If you're unsure, here's how,
