Re: Hijack problem



Mr. Lipman,
You rock. I followed your instructions to the letter, including deleting my
old Sun Java version and downloading the updated one. I ran the
c:\mcafee\clean.bat and it was surely the greatest scan I've ever used. I had
a self-repeating virus inside System32 and various other spyware, mostly in
the Yahoo Program File. After scan, I restarted and reinserted my desktop pic
and changed the style back to Windows XP in Appearance tab. Everything
appears to be fine now. Before I paste the results in here, could you please
tell me for future reference what I do with the updated Trend Micro Pattern
File once I extract it? I'm a little confused on that one point.
Thank you for all your great help. I'm going to refer back to this thread
always when needed. I'll also copy and paste it and save it for a backup.
Thanks again.
Tom B.
Also, how do I remove that virus from the Restore file?
Here's the mcafee\clean.bat scan results:
