virus!Again-Win32:Sohanad_1[Wrm] Today

  1. One of my favorite programs, "UniExtract" has a virus. Win32: Sohanad_1[Wrm], virus/worm, vps version:000730-0. What do I do now? It is sitting in the avast! chest. My best guess is to re-run the programs suggested here. Do successive viruses happen often? I get really tired of this, don't you?

    It may well be that Avast has given you a false positive and that here is nothing wrong with the file.

    Restore the file from the virus chest and let me know it`s full filepath.

    Also, please post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    The file directory is C:\Program Files\universal extractor\

    I can't get to my backup drive yet, but I will post to this site.

    It definitely looks like a false positive. See HERE.

    I suggest you contact the makers of Avast.
