Hello, whilst doing a virus scan with Avast today it found the following virus : win95;taxifolia(wm).Can anybody tell me how to get rid of this and what it is?
A search on Google drew a blank.

Found this click here;topic=39856.0 on the Avast site. It may help.

I think it is a nasty, but how old/dangerous I have no idea. Virus Total give little click here and it could be a variant click here

I would be inclined to suggest an online scan with something like Housecall click here.

Ok thanks deleted the virus then ran the free Norton scanner and Avast again. All seems to be ok now.
