hi, each time i start the PC, win98se, the screen goes red, with a message

a virus was found in marco.scr

i have AVG running i clicked "heal" anyone tell me what it is about...and what do i do now?

If AVG has lept on the virus it's probably quaratined it, in which case AVG has ripped it up and put it in a file called $vault$.avg. If you want to check, open AVG and have a look at test results, you should see it there. It will do no further harm.

Have you allowed AVG access to the virus so it can do its job and murder it?

i can not get to AVG i click on "heal" each time, and when i can get the PC started all i have on the yask bar is the clock and the connect icon..

It's been a while since I've had a virus, so I'm trying to remember. Is heal the only option? Because I seem to remember some other options when you get the red screen, from memory I think there was one that said "do you want AVG to access the virus?" If you click on it AVG should kill it.

This virus can only be healed in MS-DOS or Safe mode.

Might be helpful to print the instructions if you can.
