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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
