weird that. its here in my virus vault. thanks for ur help anon1

it may be that it is actually called something else. Have you looked at the file details in the vault? Oh that is interesting, according to my virus vault I have 4 trojans in my system restore cabs. Strange that they never got picked up before. I think maybe an avg update is reporting in error. Best bet is to do an online scan click here its free.

you are correct download agent does exist and avg will quarantine on but sys restore needs to be disabled firs, it can also be removed by an updated adaware.

I have just scanned online with housecall and it found NO VIRUS. I emptied the virus vault since. I believe that the virus report was in fact erroneous. It only takes a small trigger condition to cause an alert. Often around updates you will find this happens.
