    It's normal if you have a virus. I've had that one before; had to format. It was before I knew hardly anything about PCs, though, so maybe you'll come out a bit more lucky than me.

    I think it's normal, depending on how you have the Panda set to deal with virii.... you have the option to delete them, rename them, disinfect them, isolate them... send a warning to the address they came from if it was email, mail them to Panda for examination...... kind of looks like the program as configured was isolating them in the Panda folder..

    The Old Man: You're not reading what files are infected thoroughly enough. It says:

    D:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Apvxd.vxd (Win32.Maya.4108/4113 dropper)
    D:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Pav.sig (Win95.Bumble.1736/1738 dropper)
    D:\Program Files\Panda Software\Panda Antivirus 6.0\Pav.sig (Win95.Bumble.1736/1738 dropper)
    D:\Program Files\Panda Software\Panda Antivirus 6.0\pavdll.dll (Tentacles III virus)
    D:\Program Files\Panda Software\Panda Antivirus 6.0\pavcl.exe (Tentacles III virus)

    Every single one of these files is essential for Panda Antivirus to work. A virus has infected the important PAV files, making it useless.

    Thanks for the comments guys,

    BTW those 5 files were the only ones to come up on the HDD

    Scanned the Panda AV install file came up clean, Installed on a known clean system... bingo same result when HDD scanned in a test machine.. So have sent the Install file off to Panda to check it out..

    Personally, I'd double-check the system with an online "free" scan or two and see what it says... I'm not familiar with the virii it's finding, but, there a chance that their "wimpy stealth virii" that have infected the virus scanner when you ran it and now, having done so, it's cloaking itself elsewhere?

    In any case, I'd boot off a floppy (if that's even still possible these days) and see if you can scan the system when booted from clean media (even a cdrom). And again, perhaps an online scanner or two... at least as a sanity check.

    They are just infected files. Scan with an online virus scanner (like Panda ActiveScan) and clean them. It appears that they have tried to disable the antivirus program so I think the best thing to do would be to uninstall Panda (it will delete all the files that were created when you installed Panda meaning all the infected files) then just install it again. The viruses will be deleted from the system and you will have a new Panda AntiVirus program. I suggest you update thoroughly though because non-updated files it probably the reason you got infected with these viruses.
