    I'm using a slipstreamed home version. Using windows explorer, looking at the contents of the cd, high lighting it all & selecting properties I end up with 6,270 files & 156 folders. Size on disk is 496mb. 520,372,224 bytes.

    Do you install your antivirus from an original cd? If the virus doesn't come from the Windows cd the only possibility left seems to be your antivirus program. Strange anyway.

    When you do a fresh install with the slipstreamed cd before you do anything else seach the hard drive for my life.scr & see if it is there or not. If not then it must be the anti virus software that is infected.

    no its no an original cd, but i really doubt it its the cd where the antivirus is located.....thats one thing i did i run the antivirus on the cd and nothing came.....in fact i have a the new installer from the company and last time i did the reformat like 3 weeks ago and still get it

    The problem is not removing it. The problem is figuring out where it is coming from. :eek:

    Well both of you keep laughing but remember I'm not the one that got the worm from an e-mail attachment and cant get rid of it:D

    And personally I dont really care if you ever get rid of it.

    yikes, what hostility!

    here's a suggestion for your virus problem. that .scr file is a screensaver file.

    try looking in win32 - system folder. you'll have to enable windows to allow you to see hidden files and folders (tools - folder options - view).

    you should be able to locate the file there and delete it.

    if you can't, try wiping your system again and using a free antivirus app like this one. i use it and it works great.

    koko the problem is not getting rid of it. the problem is that as i said before i slipstream XPSP1 and whenever i do a clean install the damn virus appear, i have scanned the cds, my machine and just yesterday i scanned with norton then with AVG the antivirus software that i use in my machine to see if the antivirus software is infected and nothing came up......AS i said before I DO NOT HAVE THE VIRUS IN MY SYSTEM(sorry for the caps but there is some people that are blind or have something missing in their brains LOL ) I also scan the slipstream XP and still nothing came, i just wanna know how the f**k is that the virus appear on the machine as soon as i install XP when there is nothing in the pc besides xp and the antivirus......the virus appear on folder system32
     
  19. To me it appears that the virus software is using somekind of heuristics and wrongly detecting a virus when there isn't one, due to the fact that there is code of somekind within a particular file that is simialar to that of a virus.

    That's just my guess.

    What is the AV software? Forgive me if this has been mentioned before.

    If you had bothered to go look at the link that I provided you would see that the My Life.scr worm is distributed as an e-mail attachment.

    If you had gotten rid of the worm it wouldn't keep showing up now would it?

    And before you say that I dont read, analyze and understand before I speak why dont you try doing what I recommended and then come back and tell me that I was wrong. Did you ever stop to think that you might not really have gotten rid of the worm since it keeps showing back up?

    Or if you dont want to try the removal tool then shutdown your computer for at least 10 mins, boot to the XP CD, do a low level format (not a quick format) of your hard drive (all partitions if you have it partitioned), then do your install, install your anti-virus program, and if you still have the virus then it is most likely that it infected a file that you wrote to your CD. You can verify that by doing the install from your original XP CD without the slipsteaming.

    Or you can just continue doing what you have been doing, the people that you have in your address book will love getting e-mails from you;)
