I run A2, amongst others, religiously every Monday as well as in between times. I found two days ago that I had email.worm.win32.runouce.b on my three PC's. This was found by A2 and subsequently removed from all three. For some two to three weeks i.e. before the finding of the worm I have had IE6 pages freezing on me and if I just used the computer without accessing the internet via IE6 I did not have any problems. Also for some time prior to this I have had a dialogue box very occasionally come up whilst on the Internet advised "error on line 56", but then it carried on without a problem.
I note comments in respect of sfc /scannow on the forums, - can anyone advise as to its use in respect of repairing IE6 or indeed any other means of repair, if that is what I need to do? I have been toying with upgrading to IE7 but am loath to do this whilst the problem exists in IE6, or perhaps upgrading may overwrite the problem?
Thanks for reply, but I have each of those mentioned and I run them every Monday on all three PC's. Oddly enough on my one PC that had the worm, whereas it has removed the worm I have not been able to run a full deep scan with any of applications, - it gets part of the way then does not complete and I have to end the scan with Windows Task Manager
There was a bad Microsoft update in december that had a bad effect on IE6.Microsoft did put a fix out for it.Maybe that is the problem. Vog's repair looks like the first step to use.I cannot remember if you have add-ons on IE6 or not,But if you have try it with those turned off.
