Symantec tells you how to get rid of virus in your System Restore.  Look here:

  What version of Windows are you using?  If you are using Windows ME or XP, it 
may be in the System Restore files.

    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.

      > 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.

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.
