Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
I have viruses named " System Volume Information and Thumbs.db and Recycler " . I have tried to remove it by scanning from latest anti virus software but no one is working though i update regularly...
Please suggest me a perfect Anti Virus which can remove all kind of viruses and can be updated regularly
Thanks Your Truly
"System Volume Information" is not a virus; it is a folder where your system restore points go.
"Thumbs.db" is not a virus but a program windows uses to create thumbnail images.
"Recycler" is not a virus but the location of the recycle bin.
The reason these items are "ghosted" are because they are hidden files; removing these files/folders can have adverse affects on your computer and if you did succeed in removing them, windows will just recreate them because they are not virus related.
If your current antivirus is up to date and running okay, then you don't need to switch. It sounds like you do not have any virii.
Oh and one more thing, please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya. Thanks!
