    vyxkbs.exe

    Hi Guys. Norton keeps telling me I've got a virus called vyxkbs.exe in my Windows folder which it can't repair or quarantine. It's there but it won't delete. Any ideas??

    Cheers ... PP

    if your using 2000/xp

    press ctl-alt-del and get task magaer running, then open a command prompt

    from task manager stop explorer.exe - from the command window goto where the file is and del it then restart explorer.exe - this is done by clicking on file then new task (run) - explorer.exe is sitting in your windows dir

    Thanks for the reply. The virus is actually Downloader MSCache in the vyxkbs.exe file. How do I delete the file using the Command Prompt? It doesn't recognise the delete command.

    Cheers ... PP
