I have downloaded the ?stinger? (to delete virus) on to floppy disc. I have used it to scan and delete the virus, but when I went to look for the download of the Microsoft Patch I must of got the virus again!! (NOT FROM M$) so I used ?stinger? again but this time it didn?t show it had found or deleted any thing. Is this fix a ?one time per download? or is it something that can be used over and over?.
How big is the M$ Patch? (I don?t think I have enough time to download it before the PC shuts down!!)
Following on from the advice to use Stinger to remove the Lovsan virus of the previous few days....
I run 98se but my brother-in-law runs XP and he unfortunately contacted the virus...being unable to get on line i offered to copy the Stinger and the MS patch onto floppies and take them over to him..(fortunately he lives only 6 miles away)..i duly copied them onto floppies and took them over to him.
After downloading Stinger to his machine and attempting to use it an error message came up that this programme was not compatable with Win 32 bit..(or words to that effect)and therefore could not be activated..the MS patch could not be read by his floopy drive so this also was a non runner.
After returning home, i tried using the Stinger but got a similiar message saying it was not compatable with my system...(the MS patch was ok with my floppy drive).
Can anyone tell me why Stinger would not work on 2 separate systems?.
Incidently my brother-in-law has since removed the offending virus using symantic programme.
