W32.Beagle.AO@mm virus

    When I run Norton Antivirus I get about 19 of these, all in the RECYCLER
    directory:



    "The compressed file ACDSee 9.exe within
    C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-3293823761-1439906313-590260106-500\Dc18 is infected
    with the W32.Beagle.AO@mm virus."



    When I run FXBEAGLE from Norton (which is designed to get rid of the beagle
    virus) it does not detect any problems.



    When I search for:
    C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-3293823761-1439906313-590260106-500\Dc18, it can not be
    found by Windows XT.



    I suspect that C:\RECYCLER is part of Norton's protected deletions program,
    but that it does not really exist as a directory.



    Does anybody have a clue as to what the hell is going on?

    Yes. Empty your recyle bin. That's what the C:\recycler is...it has nothing
    to do with Norton. But it has infected files in it. The "Fixbeagle" program
    from Norton is not looking at the recycle bin. You should also turn off the
    system restore to clear all those files too, then turn it back on.

    It is also usually possible to tell any AV scanner to ignore/skip the
    recycle directory, as 'fixbeagle' does.

    True. But I wouldn't want infected files left there. But the AV software
    should put it in a quarantine, removing it from the recycle bin.
