AVG today found the above virus, running AVG did not remove it, saying that it could not be done. Well of course it is still on my system.

Spybot 1.3 stalled twice, so I can only assume the virus did that.

Over the past 8 - 10 days AVG has found 7 virus and has removed all except this one. Of course this makes me wonder why the sudden influx of virus. My firewall is agnitum and is up to date.

Anyway, what do I do now to get rid of it. Suppose wipe the HDD clean and reinstall everything! But maybe there is something less drastic that I can do.

Curly,

Avg is giving you a locatoin for this file?

you can see this file, in this place?

Restart in safe mode, check in Task manager that it is not running, stop it if it is.

Create a new folder beside it, drag and drop it into the new folder, drag and drop new folder to floppy. Format floppy (Die mofu Die).

Clear system restore if you have it still, and can not find it.

There are other options, this works.
