Hi all... thanks to my pesky cousin my pc has picked up a trojan called Downloader-RE.
System is XPpro running McAffe Virus Scan and Firewall, Spybot, SpywareBlaster and CW Shredder. Everything is up to date.
McAffe keeps kicking up this trojan but when I try to either clean, quarantine or delete the file I am told that 'the disk is write protected. The file can not be deleted'. I have turned off System Restore but still will not let me get rid of it.
I have been on McAffe site but cant find any info on this Downloader-RE trojan that McAffe keeps saying I'm infected with. The path of said file is: Documents and settings\Mr G\Local Settings\temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\6XJOLWRA\jed_s7_116.cab. My Temp Internet file folder is empty.
Any advice on how I can get rid of this thing, and why am I beeing told the disk is write- protected. Regards ZL
