Hello,

My Avira AntiVirus detects Trojan "SpyCleaner.A" and even after deleting it always appears again.
It gives the following Source :
C:\System Volume Information\_restore{69F23F68-6493-464E-8C61-55736C68A6FF}\RP790\A0097765.exe with different .exe numbers like A0096593.exe - A0096585.exe etc ...
If followed all steps as you describe, nothing found, no Spyware, nothing in TrojanHunter, ...
What do I have to do to resolve this?
Thanks in advance for helping me.
Here's the HijackThis log after the scan :

System Volume Information refers to information held in restore points for System Restore.
In order to remove this problem, do the following:

Update your anti-virus program,
Disable System Restore,
Boot into Safe Mode,
Scan your computer for viruses.
When you get the all clear, reboot into Normal Mode.
Re-enable System Restore,
Create a Restore Point.
This will give a clean Restore Point should you need it in the future.
A tutorial for System Restore is available here.

Hi Noviciate,
Many thanks for the fast response.
I did all steps you mailed me, and I think it will be OK now.
Thanks again for your prompt help.
I have one more question :
Is it OK to clean registry from time to time in Windows XP system?
Somebody told me it can give problems when restoring to a previous point. Is this true and better not to clean your registry?
Is it so helpful to clean your registry and when is it necessary?
Best regards.

The why is easy to answer. The registry suffers from the same issues as your hard drive. In order to keep your PC running well, you should defrag your hard disc regularly to keep it running efficiently - the registry faces much the same problems as your HDD and therefore needs attention on occassion. How frequently depends on how often you install and uninstall programs - a lot of junk can be left behind as the uninstall isn't 100%.

There is a theoretical risk when cleaning the registry as in the worst of cases you can render a PC unbootable - although this is very unlikely, you do need to bear it in mind.
I don't often mess with mine but I have used the trial version of TuneUp Utilities without a problem - more out of interest than anything else.
I'm sure that there are other programs out there that do a great job but as I haven't tried any of them, I can't really recommend any other. You should ask around, either online or friends to see which programs they use and what they think of them.

The best advice that I can offer, which is valid for more than just your PC and it's registry, is that "If it ain't broke, don't try and fix it!"
Things can and do go wrong with a PC and they will do so without your help so leave it alone unless:
a) You have a problem that needs fixing, or
b) You are happy to face any problems that may result from your actions, no matter how unlikely.

I know that this sounds very "doom and gloom", but I think it's better to be wise before the event rather than after.
In all likelihood, if you go away and clean your registry on a regular basis, you'll never have a problem, but at least if a problem does occur, you can't say I didn't warn you. :whistling:
