Go to start/run type regedit then highlight my computer click on edit select find, type the exact file edit.server.exe click find next. Delete any highligted item found if it is the file you are looking for. Cick find next & do the same thing and so on until the end. Make sure you backup the registry to a CD or floppy before you start in case of accidents.DO NOT touch anything else in the registry only the file you are trying to get rid of & turn off system restore before you start or it may put the file back. I hope that is plain enough.

I have just seen Vog's link, I would try that first as they are the experts.

Rawprawn cure doesn't work. Even though I deleted two files from registry enteries and restore followed.
Reagrding Vog's link. Unless you have a computer degree this is not at all easy to follow and therefore would be dangerous to carry out unless someone can interpret it for me please.
Thanks Robert

If you scroll down to where I told you, you will find a download file UNDO.REG.

Download it then double click it - this will make all the changes to the registry. It was written by experts.

Is it dangerous to edit a Word file? - I don't think so. It is not dangerous to edit the registry either, provided that you make a backup first then follow the instructions to the letter. Even less dangerous to use a registry repair tool.

Sorry but I do not understand this attitude. Do you really want to keep this virus?

I'm sorry my solution didn't work, but follow Vog's last post & I'm sure you will solve your problem. You should try not to get overawed by some of the instructions. Print them out first, then take a deep breath & follow them word by word, believe me it's easier than you think.
