You helped me clean Welchia from a friend's computer. Now another friend has Swen. Can I use exactly the same process & software that I used for Welchia or is there something else that I need for this particular virus?

Does she have a regularly update AV and FW?

thanks huggyg71 and Joanne_1. He has Mcafee but i'm not sure how often he updates (tho he's included in the list of friends whom I regularly urge to update very frequently). Suspect no FW.
I've downloaded instructions etc from your Symantec link. Info with Stinger says that can delete Swen. I've already got Stinger on a floppy; would that be easier than the Symantec route?
