Ok so this is what happened, I was got home, booted up my computer, and opened up Raidcall which is a voice chat primarily used for gaming. When I opened it, my Avast! found this virus win32:dropper-gen [drp]. When this happened, Avast! recommended me to do a boot-time scan. I did it and it found the virus and gave me a few options for fixing, repairing, or ignoring it. I decided to fix it automatically and it moved it to the virus chest and ran another scan. This made my impatient and I skipped the scan so I can boot up. After my computer derping and hanging on the login screen displaying "preparing windows" I restarted to get my computer to login right. After deleting the virus in the chest I decided to run full scans using Avast! and MalwareBytes. I then restarted my computer to make sure and tried to reinstall Raidcall. This is where I get frustrated. I see the virus AGAIN while downloading the program's exe. I decided to go into safe mode and run MalwareBytes's quick scan which found nothing. I went back and deleted anything relating to raidcall which was another exe file I downloaded a few months ago. I redownloaded raidcall's exe and there was nothing to be found. But at this point I'm kinda skeptical. Can someone help me make sure this thing is TRULY gone?
