    Post Benjamin Worm in XP

    Hello everyone. I just downloaded the AVG Virus protection program and ran a scan of my computer's hard drive. After doing so it found that I was infected with the Benjamin worm. It said that 4096 files were infected and then it repaired them. However when I rebooted the computer at the login screen AVG again detected the worm and told me to run another scan to correct the problem. Anyway after running a second scan, it did not detect the worm so it did not repair it. I noticed that the file that it detected was a file needed to restore the systems registry. Is there some way that this file can be repaired or deleted without affecting the system.

    Thanks in advance

    hi,

    you could just make a manual restore point now as it is cleaned and disregard the other one that is infected.
