c:\program files\HPQ\shared\hpqwmi.exe was isolated in The avast! virus chest as a container for suspicious and infected files. By moving a file to the virus chest, it is isolated from the rest of the system so it can't do any harm. When I asked to restore the file from the Chest, the notification that the file already exists appeared. Should the program overwrite the existing file? This question is not addressed. Didn't know a safe process could replicate itself. Seem viral to me..   bMi
