Dear all

For some unknown reason now whenever i go online after a while svchost.exe keeps on closing and shutting down itself and it doesn't stop there it changes files every now and then.

Also my virus detector revealed a sub 7 trojan on my computer but cannot get rid of it because it is in System Volume Information* folder in the c:\ whis keeps on denieing my access.

*to see this folder go to Tools, Folder Options, ViewGo down and search for hide protected operating system files (recommended) and uncheck the box.

Turn System Restore Off, Reboot, then switch System Restore back on to flush the virus from the SR directoy. It can't do any harm there..
