System volume info trojan

By emlodge ·
I run avast antivirus everyother day along with
adaware se personal & several other cleaners. My question is avast always finds a infected file every time I run the antivirus program. The name of infected files are:

A0000987.exe
A0001010.exe
A0001027.exe
1065.exe &
1085.exe.

I remove these but the next scan they come up again. What gives with this, anyone else had these issues & how to correct this, thanks...

It is a recommended practice to turn off System Restore once virus is suspected.
Run the antivirus program from Safe Mode.

My recommendations are to run disk cleanup program(s) and antispyware.

Disk Clean up
1. CCleaner - http://tinyurl.com/bvtbj
2. CleanUp! - http://tinyurl.com/bopxo


Anti Spyware ? Run these in Safe Mode
1. Ad-aware SE Personal - http://tinyurl.com/9nj9n
2. Spybot S&amp - http://tinyurl.com/yrwy2
3. Ewido - http://tinyurl.com/5b3qh
4. SpywareBlaster - http://tinyurl.com/g1d9
5. Windows Defender - http://tinyurl.com/47cus
6. Hijack this - http://tinyurl.com/u5su

I strongly recommend installing one of the listed above for your virus protection.


Turn on System Restore.

I updated my doc as it has been a year. Some people in their postings actually mentioned a program or two I did not know about. Others I have actually used and just not updated this list. Grab the updated copy at http://thedapper.mine.nu:1701/tech/quick.rtf if you wish.
