I used "Iparmor 5.39" unregistered (free) and it reported "Suspected worm found _____" 10 timers and that only the registered (pay)version could deal with it, but how do I deal with it on a no cost basis.
What is the name of the worm? You could try an on line scan from click here or; as Powerless was suggesting; download AVG, run a scan, see what it has to say and then post back to this link if you need more help. AVG is a free Anti-virus programme used by many on this forum.
bvw the virus is not called 10 timers, what I mean and should have said was the virus alert message appeared 10 times.
Powerless, beeuuem and mikef™ thank you for the responses, especially the links. Iparmor only says the virus is on my "c" drive and does not tell me what it is called, only that I should get the paid version.
Ghloria as VoG™ hints sounds like one of the scareware adverts and they want you to pay for it and surprise surprise it will immediately repair the "WORM". Responsible programs such as Norton will tell you exactly what you have, if it doesn't be suspicious of their motives.
By the way, you aren't running both AVG and Norton are you? It is generally good advice to have only one anti-virus program running - otherwise they each suspect the other of being a virus and slow your system down - sometimes bigtime.
