Such as ?

Please post some of the findings !

It could be possible some of the files have been infected ?

I don't understand either.

Ar what point do you recognise them as good programs etc?

Please explain.

sorry for the big gap in replying but it seems the vito:32 virus has gotten past my avast,spybot,spywearblaster,zonealarm protected machine.On googling it, it seems a very nasty virus which is only defeated by a reformat/clean install. I hope it has n't infected my backup files (.bkf)
What really worries me is how did it get past my always up todate protections,where/how did I download it I don't think I visit dodgy sites.
OTHERS BE WARNED SCAN YOUR MACHINE if virus free make a full system back upon a seperate hard drive

Obviously you have now solved the problem as its two weeks since the infection?If Avast has brought them up then they havent got past have they?

avast acted after the event only pointing out the infected files,google vito:32 to see how nasty & difficult an infection this is

Avast! has always acted BEFORE the event in my case and, I suspect, for 99.9 per cent of other users if properly configured...:-)

I've just googled vito:32 and none of the entries on the first 4 pages mention anything about a virus, most are pages about the Mercedes Vito van and even adding "+virus" to the search only added some medical research by a guy named Vito.
