latest avg and all up to date. when test is run it picks up 3 viruses. these are moved to virus vault and then virus vault is deleted. however, when test is run again it still detects 3 viruses? i've looked on avg site but can't see another way to remove the viruses. any ideas?

many thanks

Are they in a folder called SYSTEM_VOLUME_INFORMATION??

many thanks - i'm not at the machine at the moment (work) but what action if they are?

you will need to turn off system restore, and restart your pc to remove them, I would scan for anything else before you do give your PC a good tidy up make sure all is running as it should be because you will of course delete all your restore points when you do this..

thanks guys - turned off system restore (didn't reboot as it's didn't ask to) and ran avg again -3 viruses still there. any other ideas?

When you turn off system restore you need to reboot.

Can you tell us what viruses they are and in what files?
