    i'd worry that your Anti-Virus Software hadn't dealt with those already, i've always thought a virus scan was to catch any that slipped under the radar, but 551 files? The very few times i've encountered a virus it's been quarantined and dealt with right away.

    there has to be some mistake, surely
    When was the last time you checked?
    Did you get them quickly?

    this is proof that you need to AV scan your computer at least once a week

    hang on: 543 cleaned + 7 deleted, doesn't = 551 infected

    well after you replace it scan it again cause it may have already infected other files.plus warn everyone in your email lists cause they are likely infected too

    Only 39461 files scanned??

    When I run a scan it checks over 200,000 files.

    Either you don't have much on your system, or it's not checking very deep.

    You need to get a real time virus scanner.
