Hi My Daughters School friends have got this latest virus and their mothers are asking for help to clear it. Is there anything I can download and put on a floppy to use on all PCs or what is best way to clear. If so what from where?
thansk for any help.

Hi BIGBAGGY, prevention is really much better than a cure, and with AVG antivirus being available for free from Grisoft click here, no-one need be without protection. Some virusses can be removed with a small software removal tool, so what virus is it that you want to remove?

MacAfee Avert Stinger click here is free, small (< 800 KB), fits on a floppy and is regularly updated. I carry the latest version around on a USB memory stick along with AVG (don't forget the registration number), Spybot S&D, Adaware and other anti virus tools. Keep one in your pocket and for £20 you're more or less ready for anything on W98ME and up. For another 20p you could burn the kit to a CD.

When you are disinfecting always turn system restore off first and back on last.
