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?

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.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
