    All Users :
    Use current engine and DAT files for detection and removal.

    Modifications made to the system Registry and/or INI files for the purposes of hooking system startup, will be successfully removed if cleaning with the recommended engine and DAT combination (or higher).
    Took me ten seconds with Google.

    The name is different... the code is the same.

    So I would suggest that either your virus definition files are outdated, or escan just sucks?

    As previously stated, get yourself an antivirus program and save yourself a lot of woes.... what you have now is crap... now to answer your actual question

    Download a removal tool from here:
    http://securityresponse.symantec.com...oval.tool.html
    (scroll down its down there keep looking)

    It appears as if this one is kind of a doozy anyway as it messes with a lot of crap
    W32.HLLW.Lovgate@mm. This variant is also a mass-mailing worm that attempts to email itself to all the email addresses it finds in the files whose extensions start with "ht." The subject and attachment of the incoming email are chosen from a predetermined list.
    from http://securityresponse.symantec.com...gate.h@mm.html

    and if you have anything else on your LAN I would recommend doing a virus scan on those as well since this variant will replicate itself across the LAN

    sourabhdhar,

    Bitchslap your sysadmin...

    Where do you work exactly?

    Sounds like some serious permission issues need to be addressed, no?

    Two viruses on my network in less than a week, and I'd likely be outta a job...

    Code:
    try getting adaware and Spybot SD
    Not to shoot you down Tex.. but these will not block these worms, nore are they any good at protecting on a network enviroment..
    There are a lot mre that can be done at the client before you throw these removal tools in..
    IF the machines are internet browsing permitted ..then Spybot, or the Pro version of AAW will complement the security policies in place, and WIL NOT REPLACE any effective Anti virus solution (note I am not saying software alone here).. Also what good are ant-spy/adware progs on a server..(I assume part of the problem is a server) which shouldnt be web-browsing
