AVG and reappearing Virus

  roygbiv 12:05 15 Aug 2003

I have run ?stinger (4 times) installed XP patch, turned XP firewall on, run AVG (times), everything fine.

Now, I get a window from AVG Resident Shield,
Virus = worm/Lovsan.A
Found in C:\System Volume
To remove virus run AVG for windows.

I run AVG, it displays, no virus detected. Then (after a few minutes) it reports the virus again, so I start AVG again, only to the same result??

Did you turn off system restore before running stinger.

Right click My Computer and choose properties.
Select the system restore tab and tick the box to disable.
