About System Volume Information notifications...


I have installed the latest CIS and everything seemed to be clean so far. Sometimes though, recently, an alert pops up telling me that some .exe or .data file is an exploit an that that file is in the System Volume Information folder. I have pressed “Clean” once and I saw that the file was placed in Quarantine. A new alert popped up tonight though for another .exe file, that is also in that same area.

Why is this happening? How serious is it? Those files in the System Volume Information folder are not used actually, are they?

Thank you!

Can you please follow the advice I give in How to Know If Your Computer Is Infected and let u sknow what you find.

Also, exactly what is the detection name?

I 've checked the system repeatedly and it seems to be clean. So, I decided to Turn OFF and back ON System Restore for all drives, so that everything in all “System Volume Information” folders would be deleted. Now all those folders are empty.

Thank you anyway! :slight_smile:


Let us know if any problems reappear.
