I have just run Virusscan, and it said that I have a virus, A0011657.EXE , which I cannot delete.

Can someone tell me what is going on?

Thanks

Paul

Is it in a folder called something like _restore ?

If so turn off System Restore, scan to be sure it has gone, turn SR on again click here

There are viruses that target Windows Media Player. Examples are click here and click here

Does it say the name of the virus?

Which virus scanner are you using?

Was your original problem fixed?

It is a version of Coolweb.... you need to download CWShredder from click here Run it and hit 'fix' as opposed to scan only.

You will then need to visit the link provided by huggyg71 to repair or renistall a clean version of WMP

It is AdChecker-O. I think I have got rid of it, but I'm not sure.
