I have been invected with the I-Worm/Mydoom virus my anti virus (AVG) does not seem to get rid of it is there another way, perhaps manually that I could rid myself of this virus. I am running Win Me.

Yes it is.

Winksey - reboot in to safe mode adn then scan with AVG.

What does AVG say when it can't delete the virus?

Something about c:\system information\restore ???

symantec.com then follow the route for virus removal

Cheers Lozzy & Jester2K, I had removed the virus with AVG but I did not disable System Restore so it was retained in my Restore files, easy mistake to make I suppose still everything o.k again now. Thanks again. Winksey.

I'm being bombarded with this but haven't opened any attachments. Have run Norton and Mcafee and it hasn't found anything. How would I know if I had it? What does it do? Thanks.

If AV has found nothing - assuming its up to date, then you are clean.

The e-mails are coming from another PC which has the virus.

This is the virus -

But if the AV says you are clean then you are clean.
