Hey everyone, I hope you can help me with this..

I have an infected file in the system32 folder called "faultre.dll".

I can't seem to find much information on this virus, other than its name: Trojan.Win32.Delf.aif, and a recommended solution, "remove" :/

Now I can't seem to delete the file directly, it gives me "access denied", I've tried deleting from the command prompt with the del -f to try force it, but not even that worked.

I have AVG Free Version 7 installed, it picks up the virus, heals it, then asks for a restart of the PC, after every restart the virus returns.

Anyone know of a solution I might be able to try?

Booting into ubuntu as we speak, will let you know if this works.. not looking forward to a complete reinstall :p

Thanks for the suggestions.

Ok, booting into ubuntu didn't help.

I had to boot into the windows disc and delete the file from the recovery console.

So what are you now left with?

A system that was known to at one point be infected with a virus, from which you now removed 1 file and by virtue of that assume that it's all a-okay and safe to play around with.

The virus could've done more damage that your anti-virus software isn't aware of. It could've installed other files that the anti-virus software isn't aware of. It could have subtly clusterfucked your registry so that every click you make is sent to some shithole in russia.

Bottom-line: You CANNOT trust this machine anymore

Undergo the pain of reinstalling Windows. It will be a valuable lessen to you that making mistakes tends to be painful, and hopefully prevent a reoccurrance of this situation in the future. Plus, you end up with a machine that you can actually access your paypal account with without wondering who else now has access to it.
