Forfiles.dll Malware-Gen Virus - Please Help!

Unread postby MissMarieTM » August 5th, 2010, 7:15 pm

Let me begin by saying I have Windows Vista, 32 Bit, Antivirus is Avast! Home.

After my computer slowing down VERY NOTICEABLY today, on any program or process, I decided to reboot. When it started back up, it gave me the following error: "C:\Users\Aaron\Appdata\Roaming\Forfilesd.dll - Cannot be loaded, has a virus." So then I ran my Antivirus, and now the dll file is currently in the Virus Chest of my Avast, and the Roaming folder is coming up clean. But my system is slowing to a crawl, and it is giving me the same error that the dll cannot be loaded every time I reboot. It is reading it as a Windows32 Malware-Gen. How do I fix this? How do I restore the file? Please help!
