Hello kevinconklin,

I'm deeply sorry for the late reply. I didn't notice this thread when it was created. I only found it now.

Maybe you already solved your problem, but still I want to reply to your question, for future reference.



BitDefender can unpack many archived/packed formats, so archived threats can be detected. However, BitDefender has limited capabilities of cleaning up archived files (ZIP files, for instance, can be cleaned, but RAR files cannot).
This happens because most of the archiving/packing systems are proprietary formats. To clean an archive, you basically need to unpack all files (which BitDefender can do), and create a new archive containing only the clean files... which BitDefender can't do.

Because most archiving formats are proprietary formats, it means that the packing algorithm cannot be used without license from the author of the algorithm.

ZIP format is a free format, and everyone knows it and can use it to create (un)packers. But RAR format (for instance), is a closed format, owned by RarLabs (if I'm not mistaking). So for BitDefender to repack files in the RAR format would be basically illegal, not to mention somehow dangerous for the files, because BitDefender doesn't know the exact packing method and corrupt the archives. The same thing applies for the rest of the packing formats.


In your case, to remove the detected files, find the following files and manually delete them:
CODE
C:\My Backup -- 23-04-06 1129\Documents and Settings\Michelle Conklin\Local Settings\Temp\WinFixer2006FreeSetup.exe

C:\My Backup -- 20-05-08 2058\Documents and Settings\kev\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Directory 1 for runescape scottocs bittorrent downloader.zip\BitDownload Setup.exe


Cris.

P.S.: I will pin this topic. All other topics about this same issue will be closed and redirected to this one.

I did a Deep Scan and found dozens of files (some examples below & attached the latest scan log) that could not be scanned because they are "password protected". They seem to be all part of Spybot. How can I scan these individual files? Are they important? Could I try to find them and delete them or maybe even uninstall spybot?

Would be grateful for your advice.

Hello CPS,

If you do not know the password for those archived files, then you cannot scan them. And since, in your case, it's about files that are in SpyBot recovery, I'm sure you don't know the password. smile.gif

You can simply empty SpyBot's recovery. If you don't have SpyBot installed anymore, then simply manually delete this folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Recovery\ and everything it contains.


What everybody needs to understand is that archived files don't represent any immediate threat to the system. Even if you have a real infection in an archive, that infection can only become active AFTER it is unarchived. And the moment the infected file is unarchived, BitDefender Realtime Protection will block it.
As long as the files remain archived, you are 100% safe, and you can simply delete the archive.

Cris.

My computer is so infected in spite of my investment in Bitdefender that I am posting this from another computer, so i can't cut and paste any information.

Could you just tell me, since this information doesn't seem to be available on your website, if it's possible to contact a live person to help me out?

My added problem is that i live in France but for something this complicated i need to speak to someone in English!!!

By the way, your advice on finding and deleting items may seem simple to you, but i have no idea how to find and delete these things on my Dell Vista system. Instructions would be appreciated.

The infected item is in the recycle bin.
Empty the recycle bin and run a new scan to make sure the system is clean.

Да, но BitDefender не удаляет вирусы и из других контейнеров - jar, msi, exe, почему?
(Yes, but BitDefender does not delete viruses and from other containers - jar, msi, exe, why?)
Мы проводим тестирование различных антивирусов, и из базы в 500 семплов, BitDefender определяет 486, но вот удалить может только 430, остальные находятся в контейнерах, из которых он не может удалить, поэтому рейтинг BD оказывается ниже.
(We hold testing of various antiviruses, and from basis in 500 samples, BitDefender defines 486, but here can delete only 430, remaining are in containers from which it cannot delete, therefore rating BD appears more low. Thanks.)
