    I downloaded a zipfile, that had an "extra" program I knew to have a trojan in it, so i deleted the file. now when AVG runs, it keeps picking the file up in the "recycler" here

    C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-1844237615-343818398-839522115-1005\DC3.ZIP:\start.exe Trojan horse Dropper.Bridge.A

    and is'nt able to get rid of it and I can't seem to find the file myself, also I'm not handy with the commandline and can't make the bugger go away. Any helpful hints or what not?

    Are you using norton's protected recycling bin?

    jdn,
    Open up My computer, click Tools > Folder Options > View tab. Make sure you're set to View Hidden Files or Folders and that there isn't a check next to Hide Protected Operating System Files and you might be able to find it. I dunno about messing with System Restore though. I don't bother with that, I have a copy of Norton Ghost that I use and then uninstall, so all my "restoring" is from backup cds

    I've also found that deleting thru the explorer view in nero works.

    As far as crap backed up in the Restore files, you need to turn system restore off, reboot, and defrag. I'd also recommend adaware/spybot at this time.
