Is this really a virus? ("Never Buy DVDs

By antony.dalton ·
I have been suffering from a persistent virus report for the past week or so. The same "virus file keeps being found and deleted from the Temp Internet folder. The file is called "Never Buy DVDs Again!"
It always gets trapped by my copy of AVG Free antivirus but always reappears even when I have not been on the Internet and not used removable media. AVG is up to date using their lates Dec 2nd file. The Symantic free online test does not find it and the virus library does not know of the virus. Why does AVG keep on reporting it every day without fail? Is it a problem or just a bug in AVG. Otherwise I am very pleased with the results of AVG and it has killed off bugbear and one or two other viruses sent by a couple of people.

As suggested Ad-aware is your best bet to finding the app causing this.

To add, make sure you empty your temperary Internet files, temp folder & delete all cookies, then also check in C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs & look for any program that your not familiar with, you likely installed a program that was bundled with some third party software which is causing your virus alerts.

It is just located in a temp inet file like is mentioned above. START, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Clean Up. Then, Select Drive_C:, OK, Let it run the scan of C:, Make sure "Temporary Internet Files" box is checked, click OK, let it dothe cleaning....the rerun the AVG scan again, problem should be solved.

Good Luck.

Looks to be very useful. This solution did not actually get used because answer 3 had already done the job.
