I believe you have to turn off your system restore to remove fully. This will involve losing your restore points, do you have an imaging program. Ghost, DriveImage or True Image you could use in case of foul ups? HTH TR

No, but when i scan again it says the virus has gone. What can i go now?

I believe you will be OK. The virus will only be in the system restore files if a restore point was created whilst the virus was present.

Thanks, i removed system restore and scanned and there was no virus found. If there are any problems i will get back to you.
Again Thanks.
