When a virus found in memory what to do

click here

The highlighted "Solo Emergency Scanner Bat File"
in the second method will open up a direct download file for the floppy.

Reboot the machine through Solo emergency disk and run Solo emergecny scanner. To create emergency disk, you have to follow the emegency disk creation procedure as mentioned above.

First method: Format an empty floppy disk with system files. This can be done by following this procedure. After inserting the new disk in the floppy drive type FORMAT A:\ /S. You should use this command in DOS prompt. It will format your floppy disk and also transfers the system files. Then use Create Emergency Disk tool [ Start -> Programs ->Solo Antivirus-> ] to create emergency disk. Boot the machine through this disk to remove all viruses.

Second method: Start your system using a Boot disk and run C:\WINDOWS\SOLOSCAN.BAT to call Solo emergency scanner. If you receive "Bad command or file name" message, download and save SOLOSCAN.BAT in C:\ from the link Solo Emergency Scanner Bat File. Then start the machine through the boot disk and run C:\SOLOSCAN.BAT to call Solo emergency scanner to remove viruses.
