1500 + Virus threats

  carmichy 03:26 26 Nov 07

I run a small computer shop in the Philippines and when I opened my computers this AM my AVG found 1500 + threats on my system and healed them.

My computers seem to be working ok now but what I was wondering was if it would be better if I do a system restore back to Friday 23rd to make sure.

I have a Dell Dimension 5150 as my main server and the other three PC's are self assembled with MSI K9MM-V motherboards, AMD chips.

Thank you for AVG and any comments from the ever helpful forum members.

forgot to say the viruses were mostly Worm/autoit. ER infecting a file named AO151550 > AO151627 and Obfustat

A system restore back to Friday would probably bring all your problems back,I presume you don't run your Anti-Virus that often to have that many problems.Have you got any Anti-Spyware programs that you could also run.Now this is a free scan from Eset[Nod]it might find other problems on your computer.click here Now as you are running 4 computers I am not a 100% sure it would work properly,Best waiting for someone to Ok it.

Thanks for the advice Buteman I thought it would help me doing a system restore. Yes I have AVG and A2square. I am quite conscious of the problems of downloading. It seems though my Pinoy assistant was being over helpful and downloaded Yahoo Games from a pirated CD. The worm was AUtoit and seems to be a local worm from Pinoy students. Not harmful but annoying. My Free AVG has healed it and now I am left with the job of tidying up my Server. Johnnyrocker thank you also for your comments
