On Thursday I ran a virus scan using Avira AntiVirus where it detected a virus named SPR/Tool.68493 . I moved it to Quarantine and later deleted it. Then today (Sunday) I run another scan and find the same virus again. The infected file has been moved to quarantine, but I have not deleted it as it claims to be a System Restore file.

So, is there any reason why this virus keeps coming back? Is there something extra I should do?

Also, I have checked Avira's Virus definitions and they don't have that virus on file.

The infected file has been moved to quarantine, but I have not deleted it as it claims to be a System Restore file.

The infected file has been quarantined, but it will show up in your System Restore folder as you have created a Restore Point not knowing that your PC was infected I recommend that you run a few scans to make sure your PC is clean.
Here are a few Anti-Virus On-Line scanners
ESET Online Scanner
Also please use one or both of  these Trojan scanners
or download and try
TrojanHunter (Note Trojan Scanner 30 day Trial)

Then once you have done clear out your cache folder again ie: Run
(Note in CCleaner: go to >options > advanced > Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours").
once you know your PC is clean You can then delete your Restore Points .
Making sure to creat a new one.
if neded you are more than welcome to post you log files here.


press Enter then have a Brandy then if the problem is still there have another Brandy
Q: does it work
A: It does seem to for a few hours at least
