But it also could be that McAfee is still installed on your system. Two active a/v's running at the same time will cause this issue as well as other problems.
I'd leave the files in the avast! chest for now, as they cannot do harm to your system whilst still in there. Do not delete them as they could well be clean legitimate files wrongly detected as malicious.
Avast! Virus Chest does have the option of right-clicking and scanning the detected files whilst still in the chest; useful when the virus database is updated as time goes on. If you feel these are a false positive detection, the same right-click will provide an option to report such directly to Avast!. Meanwhile leave your detected files inside the chest.
There is a second option available to you.
Virus Total dot com provides scanning a file with 42 + virus scanners.
To be able to upload these files to VT, you will have to do a workaround, as Avast! will block uploading these files to VT dot com unless the following steps are taken:
1.) Create a new folder named "Suspect" (without the quotes) on your hard drive outside of windows on the root of the drive. When done properly, it will be a stand-alone folder next to all other folders present on the root of the drive along with windows/program files/users, etc.,.
2.) Open the Avast gui (program window) and select "Settings".
3.) Click Antivirus>scroll down to "Exclusions" and click "Add". A new line will pop up and you select "Browse". Navigate to the newly created Suspect folder and add it to the exclusions list. The file path, when done properly will look like this: C:\Suspect\*
4.) Now you can copy/paste a copy of your infected? files from the virus chest to the Suspect folder without interference from Avast! as you told it not to scan that folder by excluding it from active scanning protection.
5.) Next, open a browser and navigate to Virus Total dot com. Use the newly created Suspect folder to browse for your files and upload one at a time for scanning. Post the resulting url links here in your next reply.
Here's the thing, I recently installed Avast! av to clean up some viruses on my computer as my McAfee didn't help at all. it worked well at first, until i discovered that i couldn't open any of my windows 8 apps. the apps just showed its splash screen then it wouldn't open. so i tried finding the reasons why it happened. I found out that to open the apps, it needs something called 'roaming' files. (correct me if i'm wrong). Unfortunately, the infected files found by avast! is the roaming files and currently stored inside the virus chest.
therefore preventing me from opening the windows apps.
the virus name is "dygeanlxqx..vbs" its type is "VBS:Decode-BD [trj]"
its location is in c:\Users\lenovo\AppData\roaming
it's severity is high (that's what avast said)
My question is, is it a safe to just restore it and let it be? will it effect or infect further my computer in the future.
tq for your attention. it would be a great help if anyone could help me with this problem.
