i seem to have picked this up from somewhere :/
Nortons knows it's there but cannot delete it.
it tells me either it cannot delete/fix the file or it does not have permission to access the file.
i have booted 3 times since it has been detected and each time it is in a different place.
the above link gives advaice etc on how to remove and says:
"5. Deleting the value from the registry
CAUTION: Symantec strongly recommends that you back up the registry before making any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify the specified keys only. Read the document, "How to make a backup of the Windows registry," for instructions.
Click Start, and then click Run. (The Run dialog box appears.)
Then click OK. (The Registry Editor opens.)
Navigate to the key:
In the right pane, delete the value:
Exit the Registry Editor."
but that registry entry is not there.
any ideas as to why Nortons doesn't delete the file?
and also ideas on how i can delete this virus?
ty in advance
