    Hi:

    Never had a clue as to what to do about virus protection. Nod32 has detected the following four problems. There was no option to delete the infected files, so I don't know if that's my job to delete them, or IF I should even delete them.

    If I delete them, will is chop & screw my system? Would restoring my settings back a couple of days via Windows XP restore fix the problem?

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

    C:\System Volume Information\_restore{A2578CBA-012A-4EE9-9E3D-27D3F494A2B6}\RP3\A0000770.exe (nod32 color: red)
    C:\System Volume Information\_restore{A2578CBA-012A-4EE9-9E3D-27D3F494A2B6}\RP3\A0000770.exe (nod32 color: brown)
    File D:\I386\Apps\APP12313\src\CompaqPresario_Spring06. exe
    File D:\I386\Apps\APP12313\src\HPPavillion_Spring06.exe

    ...a variant of Win32/AdInstaller

    well, turn off system restore first of all. Then go to those folders: D:\I386\Apps\APP12313\src...etc
    and try to delete the files indicated if you know what programs they belong to. ;)

    Just to add to pykko's words :
    Boot in Safe Mode and try to delete these infected files or download Unlocker (free software , search in Google for it)

    I followed the additional nod32 settings tutorial, ran the scan and it clean all 5 infected files. I then turned system restore off, rebooted, ran the scan and verified that all files were still clean...turned on system restore and went on with my business...

    thanks for your help (and to ESET support).
