PE_ARIS.A virus ?????

  Andy.F. 12:13 20 Mar 2003

I ran a virus scan this morning using fixit and it come up with PE_ARIS.A which was defined as a virus. The program was unable to remove it and I went to the site for a definition of it but was unable to find any. Having tried in Google I still had no luck. Do any of you clever folks know if this is going to be any problem or can I ignore it.... I thank you in advance for any info you may give. I may not be back on line till early this evening so apologise in advance if I don't thank any replies quickly. Sorry, I should have mentioned that the said virus is in program files grokster exe. which I've been using for over a year....once again, thankyou. Andrew.

Housecall click here knows about it. If you do a scan there, it might be able to remove it.

no joy MAJ m'friend. I tried 3 times and on each attempt housecall got to update file 95 and then closed being unable to complete the desired update. Thankyou for your help. Andrew.

Grokster has Spyware associated with it, Andy.F. Try a download, update and run of "Adaware6" click here and "Spybot Search and Destroy" click here see if they can remove the problem.

yes MAJ, I ran adaware and the spyware was shown. I can only presume that's what the virus is. I've been running grokster for over a year and it's never shown me this as a virus definition before. Last night I updated my virus scanner and did a scan this morning, it was then it was displayed. I can only think that it's only showing me it because the update has included it in it's virus definitions...hope so anyway. If I delete all of the spyware grokster dosen't work properly...thanks for your help m'friend, I'll give Housecall another go tonight and see if I have any more luck. I'll call this one sorted..thankyou...Andrew
