Having had a big clean up, i now still have hidden worm viruses that i cannot delete as a windows (2k) search doesnt see them. Does anyone know of a worm killing utility that will hunt and destroy them all?

Considered using a virus scanner?

That is what they are commonly used for.

There are also cleanup utilities available for specific worms/trojans from anti-virus vendors such as, Trend Micro and Symantic.

Yeah. I have a good and up to date virus scanner (AVG) but it didnt find and apparently cant fix worm virusses.

Download A2 Free (http://download.emsisoft.com/a2freesetup.exe - direct link). Its an accurate and easy to use macro scanner which SHOULD detect and remove any trojans/worms from your computer.
