Help wanted with possible virus infection.

  ianeon 09:34 31 May 2010

Good morning,
I ran "Windows One Care Safety Scanner" It indicated that my computer was infected by a virus: Win32/Alureon.H, it couldn't delete this virus, it couldn't tell me where it was on my computer.
I then ran my NortonInternetSecurity,Malwarebytes Anti-malware, IObit Security 360, and A-Squared.Free
None of these detected this virus.
Do I have a virus or is it a false positive?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you.

It seems it may be some kind of Rootkit so not sure what you would need to remove it.

FRUIT BAT - Thank you for that it removed something, it didn't say what - lol - but it got rid of something.
BUTEMAN - thank you for that thought - I shall now look for an "anti-rootkit" programme to run regularly on my computer.
