  [DELETED] 07:40 16 Oct 2004

Hi I ran the latest stinger overnight and this morning I got this. I cant find C:\RECYCLER anywhere. I previously emptied recycle bin, deleted all cookies and temp files. How do I find this please and get rid of it? Thanks. Jayne. ps I have WinXP pro. Norton Systemworks 2004. Apologies I appear to have posted this in the wrong forum initially.
C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-34818398-1958367476-682003330-1003\Dc77.EXE Found the W32/Pate.dam viruss!!! file could not be repaired or deleted.

thanks powerless but how do I delete the old sys restore points? I have turned off sys restore now and will run stinger again.

if you have turned system restore off then you have deleted the restore points

Thanks guys a little knowledge each day all adds up for me. Turned off sys restore and Im running stinger again now so it should come up blank.
