Hi, I am using Trend Internet security 2009 and it showing me a virus located "system32:dumpk.exe:$DATA". it says it can not fix or delete the virus as it is a compressed file.
I have scanned the system32 folder from "C:\Windows" and it show the virus, but if I go into the system32 folder and select all the files and folders, it can not find the virus.
I have "show all hidden files and folders" ticked in windows explorer and "Hide protected operating system files" unticked.

Any help on how to find this file would be much appreciated.
