Ok, I should of mentioned this, but like... a month ago... for some reason, everytime my anti-virus is doing an update, it seems to catch something in the System Volume folder of my C Drive. It is some Long named .exe file that I think has AB as the start of the long letters. I tell it access deny, but its just, I'm wondering what is with that? Any Idea? I'll post a screenshot of it when I can if you need a better idea.

Take the full filename and google it. If my anti-virus (nod32) ever picks something up that I dont recognise thats what I do, I can usually find enough information on it to know whether I should delete the file or ignore it.

Remember you might need to boot into Safe Mode to successfully delete the file if that is what you end up doing.

System Volume Information folder is where the restore points are kept. Turn off system restore then scan your system for viruses.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
