Tales from the Trenches: How does that stuff get in there?

My computer is flashing that I have some root kit with possible malware and RRRR!  I just spent the last hour and a half running a boot time scan and deleting the win32:julkpoly bit from my computer's interiors.  Avast!, you suck right now.

UGH! Stupid spooty viruses. :o(

Hope your computer is feeling better now.

Hope you get that taken care of without it hurting the 'puter.

We have a Avast. I hope it takes care of it for you. That makes me nervous!

Janeen,

Do a boot-time scan. Schedule one tonight. It took two boot-time scans to run whatever it was out of the computer and I'm still going to run another scan before I go to bed.

Whatever you ditch, toss it into the chest and don't delete. That was the suggestion that I read online.

I ended up with two. And yes, Avast is up to date. It always updates everyday.

Rrrr.
