Did you go to the Symantec site I posted yesterday Chris????? There should be a link on how to get rid of the virus there.

Go to this link Chris, it will give you the way to remove it.

What virus scanner are you using. I would have thought it would have picked this one up

i am using nortons antivirus 2003..
apparently it wasnt in a liveupdate the first time i received it..i did a update 2 days ago and then had none till last nite.this morning....and all the virusues are in quarentee...so they havent been run or anything..

so do i just delete the viruses since they havent been running on my system? or how do i find out if they have been running..or are running?

If the viruses have not "run", then you should just delete them.

If they have "run", then visit here (http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.yaha.h@mm.html) for full instructions.

(The forum corrupted the links above)

Is there anyone on here willing to use MSN to talk 2 me and help me find and edit the virus if it has run on my computer....Nortons antivirus aint picking anything up....and i am not a confident person when it comes to fiddling with serious settings for teh system..and just want someone to talk 2 thru the process...

Hi Baldy..just added u..
and apparently i dont think i have one after all...
i did 3 scans this morning...liveupdated b4 and after each one...(silly i know but yeah)...and it decected nothing...but weirdly when i first got on the computer it told me i had a virus...but decect nothing......
Maybe i dont have..or is it coz its "running or has run b4" and it is not able to be found?

I should be on MSN around 2 maybe 3....hopefully earlier..
my msn addy is csinclair83 at man dot quik dot co dot nz

Catch ya sometime :-)
