    Whenever I start my PC, my Avira Antivir Personal-Free Antivirus has detected the following files at Windows/System32 as Trojans :
    1. postgres.exe
    2. posmaster.exe
    3. postmaster.VIR
    I quarantine them all. But when I restart the System the error message saying the windows missing a file - postgres.exe appeared. Are these viruses? If so, how can I fix the problem? Pliz advice!

    Try AVG to remove them.

    Avira is not good at all

    Do you have any databases installed on your PC, like Oracle or something. They are infected. So the thing is, these are background processes which are related to them. So every time your PC these processes naturally get loaded at start-up. Hence the warning!
