I had a virus on my computer. SO I download AVG. The virus goes away, but now my computer won't go into sleep mode. Checked my USB roots and that to make sure everything was in sleep mode.

I use Vista. Suggestions?

You can't clean a compromised system by patching it.

You can't clean a compromised system by removing the back doors.

You can't clean a compromised system by using some "vulnerability remover."

You can't clean a compromised system by using a virus scanner.

You can't clean a compromised system by reinstalling the operating system over the existing installation.

You can't trust any data copied from a compromised system.

You can't trust the event logs on a compromised system.

You may not be able to trust your latest backup.

The only way to clean a compromised system is to flatten and rebuild.
