Jester's right I had one a few month ago.Empty your system restore as described above and then run your anti virus,cleared mine no probs.

I have managed to infect my pc with the LALAUS A virus.I have tried emptying the restore system utility but with no effect. I am using AVG 7 and it picks up the virus but will not let me delete, heal or move to the virus vault. I have updated my virus database regularly so it is not this and each time I try to run the internet I get directed to a site called Blade Runner.HELP!

Start a new thread if you have a problem.

Boot into Safe Mode and rescan with AVG.

Having tried all forms of trojan removal, I have found a utility that appears to have cured the problem,at least it has for the moment. The utility can be found at click here is a free trial download so I tried this and the trojan was spotted almost immediately, I was then given the oportunity to remove it which I did and then rebooted the pc and scanned it with AVG just to make sure it hadn't reloaded. No trace! fingers crossed

Thanks Guys

I have just done as you said, disabled system restore and then run avg and fingers crossed there has been no more virus alerts, so thanks a lot.
