TrendMicro just did a scan and said I have this virus in my system restore info folder. It points to a file named A0016638.exe. Is there a way I can access the system restore folder to delete this rascal?
thanks,

Go to Control Panel> System> 'System Restore' tab> Tick 'Turn off... on all drives.' Do that, reboot and then you can reactivate it.

Lonman,
Thanks for reply. I followed your suggestion and was able to search the sys restore folder but I never could find the files that PC-illin was referring to, even with unhiding all files.
Anyhow, I installed a McAfee scanner and it didn't see it. Couldn't find any reference on the Trend or McAfee sites the name Trend gave it. So who knows.
I guess if this forum gets 20 copies of this post I still ought to worry huh ;-)
thanks again,
bill g

By turning off the restore feature, I believe the system automatically deletes all those files. My suggestion was geared more to get it off your machine than in tracking it down. I'm glad to hear that it's comming up clean for you now.

I just did a search for the virus at trendmicro and this is what came back:

TROJ_FLDR.UDP.20

Risk rating: low risk
Virus type: Trojan
Destructive: No

Aliases:
FLDR.UDP.20, Flooder.Win32.UDP.20

Description:
This Trojan is written in Visual C++. It can flood any network computer or server. It does not have a destructive payload.To flood, it sends garbage data, text or file in to the target computer from a remote location.

As long as you have your virus definitions up-to-date you shouldn't have a problem with it. It looks more like a nuisance virus than a destructive one so I wouldn't worry about reformatting or anything (save that joy for the nasty ones ;) ).

Hey, thanks again for the info. I must have entered every permutation I could think of into the McAfee and Trend sites searching for info. I must have had a "." vs a "_" connecting the name.
I'm not very familiar with Trend having used McAfee for years. PC-illin came installed on that computer so I couldn't tell if it was a false positive or what.
thanks again,
