    you might also want to scna your pc online at http://housecall.trendmicro.com to either fix or scan for other viruses. You could also install free or paid versions of firewall to protect your computer from other threats online. you can get BlackIce Defender at www.blackice.com or zonealarm at www.zonelabs.com. to get information from trend micro on how to manually fix this virus go to http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/viru...TU.A#solution.

    AVG is poo i used to use it and it missed lots of virus's. If u would like to check ur pc for spyware and virus and delete them thoroughly try going to the computer associates website and do an online scan

    also i use ad-aware anti spywqare tool which u can find here

    and u might want a firewall too if u dont already use one, these are a few good free firewalls

    Are you trying to remove it from the file it shows you? If so, forget it. The file is the worm, there's no other option except to delete the file.
