Windows 8 apps problem and Avast!
by sylorein - 2/5/14 3:32 AM
Here's the thing, I recently installed Avast! av to clean up some viruses on my computer as my McAfee didn't help at all. it worked well at first, until i discovered that i couldn't open any of my windows 8 apps. the apps just showed its splash screen then it wouldn't open. so i tried finding the reasons why it happened. I found out that to open the apps, it needs something called 'roaming' files. (correct me if i'm wrong). Unfortunately, the infected files found by avast! is the roaming files and currently stored inside the virus chest.
therefore preventing me from opening the windows apps.
the virus name is "dygeanlxqx..vbs" its type is "VBS:Decode-BD [trj]"
its location is in c:\Users\lenovo\AppData\roaming
it's severity is high (that's what avast said)
My question is, is it a safe to just restore it and let it be? will it effect or infect further my computer in the future.
tq for your attention. it would be a great help if anyone could help me with this problem.
