Can't remove Trojan horse downloader Istbar.D

  notrom 09:11 19 Sep 2003

I've got the free version of AVG and it detected Trojan horse downloader Istbar.D. When I tried to remove it, I got the following message:

FileC:\_RESTORE\TEMP|A0025732.CPY can not be removed.

Have updated everything and also have Spybot, which found nothing on updated scan.

Any suggestions, anyone???

I think you need to disable system restore, which OS are you using?

It is stuck in a Restore Point. Turn off System Restore, scan again to make sure it is gone then re-enable System Restore.

The offender is in the system restore files. You have to turn off system restore, run the virus scanner again and then reinstate system restore. Obviously you will lose all your previous restore points but that is a samll price to pay.

Not sure if previous success response worked - seems to have vanished! Anyway, thanks very much everyone, your instructions re System Restore were spot on!
