Hi there peoples im in real need of any assistance if possible. Im running MS ME and the problem is i think ive got a nasty worm or virus on my computer. The problem that im having is that something is taking up all my memory. Ive traced where its all going and its location is C:\WINDOWS\TEMP the folder is called sys32.
Now ive scanned my comp for any viruses and its all up 2 date but it says that its all clear.
Ive even deleted the problem folder but each time i turn my comp back on its back doing its nasty wee thing.
I have found the source of the problem but have been unable 2 delete it as it says it is in use the main source is C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\EXPLORER.SCRany help with this would be a life saver oh and since ive been typing this message ive lost 340mb so u can see my major prob.

Alisa,

Here is the culprit:

venc/data/w32.benjamin.worm.html

There are instructions on how to remove the worm close to the bottom of that page - hopefully they should be easy enough to follow.

Good luck :-)
