Try finding the file that your AV quarantines viruses in and delete the contents of the file. You might try deleting your temp files and recycle bin too.
I need advice. I have a windows xp system that cannot get rid of WIN32/MAGISTR.B virus. Some weeks ago my system reported the virus WIN32/MAGISTR.B and I immediately ran AVG virus program and it cure the virus. However, even though the virus is no longer on my system I keep getting notice when I reboot of a virus identified by AVG Resident Shield and that I should run AVG to remove it. When I run AVG it reports no virus.
I have scaned my computer with all the free virus scan programs on the internet including:
And I downloaded, installed and ran Protector Plus 2000 from http://www.protectorplus.com; it found no virus. I also conducted registry searches for WIN32/MAGISTR.B and MAGISTR.B and and found none. I did a search via regedit for A0017360.exe and it found one which I deleted. That was a week ago. I am still getting the message of "Virus identified" and I feel sure I do not have a virus. I uninstalled AVG and reinstalled it and still get the message.
Any suggestions any one.
