Go to Control Panel/Internet Options/General Tab/In the 'History' box press 'Clear History'. Then do a rescan. You can also get into the Internet option from within IE by going into 'Tools' at the top of the page. click here Is a free program that will remove leftover Internet & temp junk but not viruses.

Clear History won't do much in this case.

"Delete Files" button will however. It'll remove the contents of those folders including the viruses from your PC. Open IE, Tools menu, Internet Options, General Tab, Delete Files.

Be careful what you do with CleanUp - its the subject of a few threads here... and not good ones either...
