I have my friend's PC here. It's running XP Pro and has Norton Antivirus with the latest updates. When you I run a full scan, it says that it has found a virus but it cannot get rid of it. There is no mention of what it is or where on the PC it is located. HELP!!
Just an update. I've now traced the virus. Its MSSMGRD.EXE Virus name W32.Randex.gen Its loctaed in C:\Windows|system32\ I've just tried delting it, but it will not let me. I went to Symantics site and tried as they suggested and that failed too.
I had already done the registry bit and managed to get rid of all but MSSMGRD.EXE. My friend, whos pc it is, came round with NAV 2004 and we installed that, did the updates... hey presto... its gone. I have no idea why, would be nice to know. But hey, who cares. Its gone and I can throw all the empty scotch bottles away.
Thanks Vog for the help.
Thanks for that help. I will file that away.
