Wow! :wacko: I've got a terrible headache after reading your post, right now. <_<

Haven't you heard of punctuation and paragraphs?

They're still an integrating part of the current orthography, you know?

Besides, I feel very frustrated that after fighting my way towards the end of your post, I still didn't find a single phrase stating exactly what your problem is or what you wanted from us.

From what I can gather, you seem pissed off about some virus infection you have on your PC. If that's the case, you're kind of in the wrong forum here, because this is a BitComet/BitTorrent related forum.

However, I don't see what prevents you from going to several antivirus sites and running their online scanners (Kaspersky, Panda, Eset, BitDefender etc.) with the setting to delete every infected file they encounter. Do that, at lest twice with everyone of them... until you get no longer any more virus alerts.

Or, if you don't feel up to the task of disinfecting your computer, then just backup any important data you have (but not executable files such as application's kits or games), format your drive and reinstall/restore your OS with a clean slate.

Wiz is right, and I'm still trying to get my eyes uncrossed. Don't write like that if you expect help.

You seem to think that once you've downloaded a file and loaded it on your disk, that it is now safe from becoming infected. That is not true. Many viruses seek out files on your disk and infect them. That means it's entirely possible for something to infect files that you've had there for years.

this is why you must regularly and routinely perform maintenance on your system at least once a month. you must run a full virus scan with Avast or some other AV program, and also scan with other malware and adware programs like Spybot S&D, and AdAware, plus a rootkit detector. You should also defragment your drive. This should be done every month on a regular schedule.

This isn't a new requirement -- you should have been doing it all along, but since you have not, there is probably a lot of hidden malware on your system. You should get and run the most recent version of CureIt from DrWeb.com This will take quite a long time, especially as it is likely to find a lot of problems. This is the price of neglect, alas.

As for integrating Avast, this is a convenience but is not necessary, provided that you scan each new download manually with Avast's GUI interface, or have told Avast to integrate itself with Windows Explorer and can right-click to choose to scan a file from the menu. You must remember without fail to do this with each new download.
