| I have AGV full version, and it keeps picking up 2 virus's in windows system
| 32. I have XP professional and results are:
| C:\\Windows\system32\drivers\
| C:\\Windows\system32\drivers\
| I dont want to delete them in case they are important parts of the operating
| system, and they cant be healed.
| the virus found in both cases was
| IRC\BackDoor.Flood
| Anyone have any suggestions? Many thanks in advance.

Do you mean AVG (not AGV ) ?

Are the paths and file names provided accurate ?

What you posted are INI files and are NOT viruses.  At the most they are directives for mIRC
dialogs and are themselves not dangerous.  They would be used by an EXE, DLL or other
executable binay file.

If AVG did not identify some executable to cooincide with these files there are two

1.    It is a False Positive declaration
2.    AVG failed to find the actual virus or Trojan actually using the those files.

Please use the following Multi AV Scanning Tool to scan your computer starting with the
mcAfee module...

Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal Mode.
This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe
Mode.  It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive PDF help
