Hi,

I appear to have an infection on my PC. I am running on Windows 98 2nd Ed Dial up connection and use Firefox and Internet Explorer.

The infection appears to be "VBX2"

Has anyone any advice on removal. I run Adaware SE and AVG Antivirus.

I ran a Google search for VBX2 and got this click here are you sure you spelled it correctly ?

I can find no info for a virus called VBX2, click here and if you can answer any of the questions with a yes then do an online scan.

Could you give a bit more information please?


For example how did you know about it and what if any messages about it do you get on your monitor?


A Google (+ other search engine) check does not throw up any mention of this as malware.
