Hi Martha, Bob & All,
It worked.
When I undid System Restore and followed the instructions from
symantec.com, it worked.   The popup message does not appear
anymore.        :-)

  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.

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.
