    I ran an indepth scan of my drives with NOD32. It found 5 virus' all related to "Win32/PrcView". I was able to delete these 3:

    C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-448539723-1682526488-839522115-1003\Dc56\Process.exe - Win32/PrcView application - deleted

    C:\System Volume Information\_restore{349283F7-2737-4121-AB67-74DCE51C3513}\RP357\A0030560.exe - Win32/PrcView application - deleted

    C:\System Volume Information\_restore{349283F7-2737-4121-AB67-74DCE51C3513}\RP394\A0031462.exe - Win32/PrcView application - deleted

    This one I could only quarantine:

    C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-448539723-1682526488-839522115-1003\ - Win32/PrcView application - quarantined

    This one I was only allowed the "Leave" option so is still live on my system I suspect....

    C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-448539723-1682526488-839522115-1003\ »ZIP »SmitfraudFix/Process.exe - Win32/PrcView application

    I have read a previous post by "Yeleek" regarding a similar case but it is not quite the same as mine... Can anyone throw some light on the subject for me and run me through the process to get rid of this little monkey? I would also be keen for any links you may be able to provide as to the optimal/correct setup of NOD32.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hello ! Welcome to Wilders !

    This is not a real virus/malicious code but a pottentially unwanted/unsafe application.These are applications which can be used for two things - with good purpose and with bad purpose . In your case you have used it for a good purpose (SmitfraudFix) but an AV software cannot decide if an application is going to be used for either bad or good so it'd better block/eliminate this application .

    1. Empty your Recycle bin

    2. Disable and then re-enabled System Restore
    Right click on My Computer - choose Properties , choose "System Restore" tab - check "Turn off System Restore" . Press Apply . Wait a few seconds . Now uncheck "Turn off System Restore" and press OK.

    The default setup of NOD32 is really good . If you want automated settings , read Blackspear's tutorial
