you dont give much to go on but i suggest you d/load stinger via google search to a floppy and run that,
if xp you need to disable system restore and run mc afee again.
try to supply more info pls.

ive disabled restore. but still the same.i also keep getting this message (272)debugger detectedplease disable and restart the application.

Do not disable System Restore - if you do, you will remov all previous restore points.

Too late!

Why did you recommend that potfrog2 disables System Restore? This removes any chance he/she has of restoring the system if he/she can't clean it.

maybe this is why click here

""Stinger found a virus that it couldn't repair. Why is this?

* This is most likely due to Windows System Restore functionality having a lock on the infected file. WindowsME/XP users should disable system restore prior to scanning. ""

If you disable System Restore you remove both good and bad restore points. This advice is wrong! You clean the computer first and then disable System Restore to clear the bad restore points.

i disabled restore because i had a simalar virus a while ago it kept coming up with a virus warning until i unchecked inthe process of running a trojan check at the moment its come up with 1 so far.
