My anti-virus saw this file as an infected file and removed it.  Where can I get a copy of this file to replace it?

Hi,

Check Quarantine in Your antivirus. Maybe it's not removed, but only moved there.

Maybe you did not delete it, but just move it to avast Virus Chest.

Check is it available there and if yes then just restore it and flag it as false positive file.

I too have deleted Killit.exe and have checked my virus chest on Avast.

The program is gone.

Where can I download it as I can't roll my system back to a previous date before the deletion.

Please help me asap.
