    seriously i recomend that you run a scan in safe mode as if it is comming back in normal mode safe mode should sort it, i know you prefere not to but i think its the best way.

    yeh its a real word.

    confest;
    v., To waste or steal resources under the cover of a far more wasteful or corrupt entity. "The draining of the social fund was a cleverly confested scheme, with the stock inflation scandal taking the limelight."
    (contraction: co-infestation)

    but i think the term you are looking for is
    [bold]INFESTED[/bold]....

    infested
    adj : (often followed by `with' or used in combination) troubled
    by or encroached upon in large numbers; "waters
    infested with sharks"; "shark-infested waters"; "the
    locust-overrun countryside"; "drug-plagued streets"
    [syn: overrun, plagued]

    so, i scan in safe mode and when i have to reboot the computer to complete the scan i boot up in normal mode and then i'll be virus free? Also, where can i find this type of files:C:\_RESTORE\TEMP\? In my computer or in my local drives, just to make the scan more efficient and shorter or else it take 3 hours!

    I think that they all are in system restore. Try to follow these instructions -> http://www.brohm.org/SystemRestore.htm

    EDIT: Remove the check mark from 'Disable System Restore' after reboot

    what do you mean jjssj? Do i create another restore point now? Then all the viruses would be saved, wouldn't they and i don't want to restore to the total beginning because i have got a lot of important stuff on the computer now.

    ok look, i did what all of you said and i did it properly apart from doing tha whole reboot thing to the manufacture state. But, none of it worked. Then i tried to delete all the files with ccleaner and it worked! Hurrah! Thanks for all your help.

    I have two options in my mind. Let's try one of them.

    Can you access this directory?

    C:\_RESTORE\TEMP\

    I mean that there shouldn't be anything useful.

    Copy this text to notepad and save it as fix.bat (save it as All Files)

    attrib -h -r -s C:\_RESTORE\TEMP\*.*
    del C:\_RESTORE\TEMP\*.*

    Save it to your desktop and doubleclick it. Did it help?
