Help with error message after virus attack,please

  Tim Fairhead 16:29 07 Feb 2003

I would be most grateful for some help. Recently, my Polar computer, which runs with the Windows 98 Second Edition, was infested with the
I-worm/Lirva.B worm from an e-mail and this was successfully removed by the Solo Antivirus programme. However, on starting up the computer every time, I now get an standard error message with a white cross on a red circle in a grey rectangular box with a standard OK button and that error message says: Cannot find the file '\RECYCLED\f6ADA0B.exe' or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

This message now comes up every time and it is as if the operating system is trying to find this worm file. Can anyone please tell me in easy to follow steps how to get rid of this error message? Any help would be very much appreciated.

With thanks,
Tim Fairhead

There's a removal tool click here

This should remove the registry entry that is causing the error message.
