Just before the first reboot combo fix had me note several file locations. Detection Shows the name of the malware found. They can repair if possible infected files and registry entries and they can remove other malware-related files from the infected system. Click on System Restore Settings on the bottom left corner of the open window. I am going to try running Root Repeal under a different file name again- I have a notepad file open so i can try to copy what if anything I can get in the event that it is shutdown again.
Example how to do this this is an example with malwarebytes exefile mbam. I have never ran into this situation, but I have read that before. I didn't consider going to the application specific forum, I am not an expert and I think most who go there are. Ok here is the new ComboFix Log. The Restore To button displays a Save As dialog prompting you to select the location where you want to save the restored file. While running on-demand scanners is no guarantee that the system is indeed clean, it increases the likelihood that it is.
Thanks for explaining the quarantine. This should unlock the file. They should have been quarantined and removed if Anti-Spy worked. Avast sure does - it practically looks like Norton from that standpoint. When Avira detects virus- or malware-infected files, it automatically transfers them to its protected Quarantine directory. You can try to clean it, but if it doesn't work, yest you want to try and recover the file by other means, you may quarantine it. It's not working, I had been wanting to switch her computer over to another browser anyway- possibly Chrome.
What error do you get? The saved log from Avira has dissappeared. In addition to the continuous monitoring system, check entire disks, removable media, and individual folders. Avaira, are you reading these comments and acting upon them? More thoughts to choose from,better helping someone to make a wise choice. Ok- I'm about to perform those steps. I'd suggest the proper way to remove Quarantined files is from within the antivirus itself.
You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. Other independent antivirus critiques usually place it amongst the leading antivirus software available - which means that your search for the very best free antivirus software is over! After reboot, Combo fix continued running it's scan, except I started getting Avira messages that a virus, or trojan had been detected. Sometimes they delete important system files, or programs that were just installed. I received an automatic Avira anti-virus notification of blocking an item. Once a file is sent to quarantine it cannot be executed as long as it resides in quarantine.
Better to look stupid,than to never ask,and remain ignorant of the facts. I went to the Avira application to find information on the item. Again, delete any trojans and then turn on the System Restore. When a trojan is discovered by your anti-virus program, you need to perform two tasks! Quarantining them has no effect on whether you get infected again. Some options, the ability to only scan the main drive or excluding certain directories come to mind, would certainly be useful.
Maybe I missed something on the program interface, but couldn't find that option, which is dissapointing since it was so difficult getting it to run because of the infection. How long does it take for Avira to delete these files? Also, locating the file on your computer gives you options to scan it with an online service such as. Quarantine is just a holing area for files you want to keep but couldn't clean, saving the files but rendering the malware inoperable. In some cases, the anti-virus software might quarantine legitimate items by mistake. Warning Enormous damage in the system due to viruses and unwanted programs! Therefore it is just dormant and not gone until, if ever, it is overwritten.
It's similar to quarantining a sick person so that they can't infect anyone else; they're not removed permanently nor are they necessarily healed, but instead just isolated. What happened to the quarantined files? Scan engine Version number of scan engine Virus definition file Version number of the virus definition file Detection Name of the malware detected. The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask. I also every year scan the computer using a rescue disk like Kaspersky, which loads outside windows which can help remove malware that uses trick to hide in windows. Restoring a file should mark it as safe and Araira should leave it alone. Note You can only upload one file at a time.
I tried to scan quarantine files again in new windows so that Avira I installed it again because it's still very good can take out real allegedly viruses, but they are encrypted, so they seem to be clean. Therefore, malware may be stored an unlimited period in quarantine. Thanks, Rob I have been fighting a serious infection all week. I should do a manual update whenever I turn the computer on. Some people don't want all the options provided by suites, so why pay for what you don't need? So just leave it as is and you should be ok, I think they have since updated avira and it no longer flags that as a trojan.
