Help with Downloader-RE trojan plz

  Zion_Lion 22:02 11 Jan 2005

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[1].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-
Regards ZL

Well! I have just un-ticked the read-only box for the Temp Internet Files folder properties.
Attempted to delete the file again, this time was told file not found. ???

So far so good... Things seem to be fine now after running that CleanUp tool.
Thanks once again VoG™
