Is this a false alert?
I have the new version of AVAST, and it just finished running a complete scan. Up popped a virus warning for Win32:Malware-gen, regarding nine files. These are located in C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\ and include eight links or icons with the shortcut arrow on them. The names of these links are App Recovery, Creator, Record now, Restore, RTCD, Run, SysRecovery, and Wizard. The ninth file, also in the hp folder is bin:SetRes. All are .exe files. So far I have done nothing other than run a Malwarebytes scan which showed only one minor PUP, which I had it delete.
I tend to think these are not a virus, but I'll certainly put them in the Chest for safety, just in case. These can be recovered from the chest, right? So, any enlightened opinions about this?
