So, yesterday I was doing a full system virus scan using avast, and it came up with three viruses, apparently Win 32s. Even when I did the boot scan it still came up. Anyways, I moved both results of the scans to the chest for the time being, and began to follow the sticky with Basic Removal. I disabled the restore system, ran Hijackthis, and did another full system scan. But the viruses didn’t show up again. Is that because I moved them to the chest? And if so, will I have to restore them? Or could it be a false positive? I’ve heard Win 32 viruses are pretty nasty the longer they are left on a computer so I’m worried and want to get this fixed ASAP D:

Here are the results of the viruses from the full system scan
Here are the results of the viruses from the boot scan

Here it is. It's the one I took before I did the second virus scan, but I can do it again if you need it.

I can't see the link you gave me, it just links me to the paste page.
Contest: Holy crap, have you even read the sticky? YOu see those three files? rkill.com, scr, and exe? THOSE ARE THE TOOLS I PUT IN THE STICKY TO SHUT DOWN INFECTIONS.
This is a false detection.

@Ribbon: Hi, I'm Yuki, I'm the guy who manages that guide. those are not viruses, but tools made to remove viruses. What scanner are you using?

I'm using avast. Strangely, I've had rkill and avast on my computer for ages, and I scan at least once a week so if it's false I don't know why avast is bringing up those now. Unless it was something to do with an avast update that caused it to flag the tools as viruses?
Probably. It's odd.....

you didn't even need to read hijackthis logs. Just read the guide I made, and look at the pictures she posted.

I would like a clear answer, if at all possible.

As we said multiple times, this is a false detection and everything is fine.
