Thought it would, I have heard about this before.  One thing to remember: As 
long as you did not need to use the System Restore, you would be perfectly safe 
from the virus.  I hope you remembered to start the system restore up again!

  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

      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.

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.
