    Re: Directx

    Hi
    Thanks for your reply

    Yes I checked it also and found it was a low risk however I would like to remove it so that I do not pass it on to somebody with windows.

    Is there no way to remove it ???

    Surely if there is no way to remove a virus then what is the point in scanning for them !!!

    Seems strange

    Regards

    Healey

    It's only for testing/finding. That's why it says test instead of scan . Either you delete the infected file or use F-prot for removing and dis-infection or use AVG commandline.
    Code:
    avgscan -clean <paths>
    I don't know if the full version have a clean option in gui.

    Command-line scanner:

    avgscan [options] <path or file to scan>

    -scan Scan test /path,path/
    -heur Heuristic Analysis /path,path/
    -exclude Exclude path or files from scan
    -@ Command file /file name/
    -ext test these extensions /for example EXT=*/
    -noext do not test these extensions /for example NOEXT=JPG/
    -smart Smart scan
    -arc test archives
    -rt test run-time compressions
    -pup detection of potentially unwanted programs
    -clean clean automatically
    -arcw report archives
    -rtw report run-time compressions
    -macrow report macros
    -pwdw Report password-protected files
    -changew Report changes
    -ignlocked Ignore locked files
    -report Report to file /file name/
    -repappend Append to the report file
    -repok report uninfected files as OK
    -stoplevel Pause on detection /1-n/
    -h Display help on this topic
    --help Display help on this topic
    examples:
    1) next command scans whole directory /home and checks all files, including
    archives and run-time compressed files

    $ avgscan -ext=* -rt -arc /home

    2) same as example above, but with heuristic analysis

    $ avgscan -ext=* -rt -arc -heur /home

    3) same as example above, but saves scanning results to the 'results.log' file

    $ avgscan -ext=* -rt -arc -report results.log -heur /home

    Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    Hi
    Many thanks for your reply

    This is what i did - I assume it did not work:

    avgscan -clean /usr/lib/wine/wintab32.dll.so
    AVG7 Anti-Virus command line scanner
    Copyright (c) 2006 GRISOFT, s.r.o.
    Program version 7.1.24, engine 718
    Virus Database: Version 267.0.0/301 2006-04-04
    License type is FREE.
    /usr/lib/wine/wintab32.dll.so Virus found Akuku $(@FileError) /usr/lib/wine/wintab32.dll.so
    Tested: 1 files, 0 sectors
    Infections: 1
    Errors: 0


    What should I do now ??

    Thanks

    Healey

    Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    In theory it should clean it, but you might do it with sudo if it's in /usr/lib/wine. Try run it again. With sudo permission.

    Question how did it come there in the first place? Did you run wine with sudo?

    Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    Healey - I just got the exact same thing. Using -clean didn't do any good for me, so I just deleted the file using:

    sudo rm /usr/lib/wine/wintab32.dll.so

    I'm gonna uninstall Wine and reinstall it. Gonna find out where it's coming from.

    Hi
    Thanks for your reply OMRebel

    I wanted to delete this file, but as i am new at Linux I was not sure if this would stop wine working or even worse perhaps !!

    Is it ok to do this ??

    Thanks

    Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    As I said before I'll recommend you try to scan it with another anti-virus application. It could be a hoax.

    Exclamation Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    I completely removed Wine through Synaptic, reinstalled it, and it is still finding Akuku in that same file. Either this is a false positive, or the repo has an infected file.

    The deb it was using when reinstalling was showing as /wine_0.9.11~winehq1-1_i386.deb

    The file it is reporting it on is consistent: /usr/lib/wine/wintab32.dll.so

    Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    AI - I copied the file to a floppy and scanned it on my XP machine with Trend OfficeScan, and it didn't report any error.

    So, is it just a foul up in AVG's definition files?

    Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    Hi
    I have tried clamscan (old version because I dont know how to upgrade it) It did NOT find any virus

    I have tried again with sudo permission - same result !

    I dont think I tried wine with sudo - Not sure why I should have done that but its possible because I am new to all this - still learning !!


    Its strange eh!
