Hi Pam,

Not only did I delete the file that AVG uses to quarantine
viruses;   after it did not work I uninstalled AVG, rebooted
and downloaded fresh and installed the AVG again.   I use
Cleanup.exe to delete all temp files (I also double checked
with properties on c driver and all temp files were gone).

I do believe the popup message is related to AVG but I don't
think it's in the program itself;   it must be in Windows ini
files and I've looked in all of them and cannot find any
reference to Win32/Magistr.b.    I'm stumped.

  Hi Carl,
  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.

uninstalled AVG and reinstalled it and still get the message.
