Here you go Marge,

Just found this over at Symantec's site Click here not to sure if it will help you, but its worth a look, it has some removal tools and I think there free?

Anyways good luck with it [edit] type in w32.yaha.f [/edit]

if you're still paranoid..then do a system restore ( gosh...****roaches and viruses scare women * Marge is standing on the chair*)

notice that when you do a system restore anything you downloaded, installed etc after the point you're going back to it will be lost.

And if I remember correctly, if you do not go back far enough for the system restore, the virus could still be incorporated in the restore and you will still have it!

I have been very lucky - staying virus free - but if and when - I intend to delete all my previous restore points after removing the virus and then starting restore over again - knowing I have a virus free restore point!

Just for info from the Symantec site:

System Restore option in Windows Me/XP
Windows Me and Windows XP users should temporarily turn off System Restore. This feature, which is enabled by default, is used by Windows Me/XP to restore files on your computer in case they become damaged. When a computer is infected with a virus, worm, or Trojan, it is possible that the virus, worm, or Trojan could be backed up by System Restore. By default, Windows prevents System Restore from being modified by outside programs. As a result, there is the possibility that you could accidentally restore an infected file, or that on-line scanners would detect the threat in that location. For instructions on how to turn off System Restore, read your Windows documentation or one of the following articles:
How to disable or enable Windows Me System Restore.
How to disable or enable Windows XP System Restore.

Thanks Yank but I've done that.The worm warning first appeared yesterday so I scanned for it and did the restore thing from Symantec...It couldn't be found so I just left it alone until I had more time to look it up.I've been busy so I forgot about it . The computer was left and the screensaver was running when I heard the AVG alert which told me that the worm was there so I scanned for it again and it still said "nothing was found"so I have no idea how to get rid of it:(

When you say you got your AV warning,it may be that it quarrantined it and it is not loose on your pc?

I would imagine if the removal tool never found it then its not there.

I'm at a bit of a lose where to direct you, can you remember the warning you got?

If so that could give us some pointers to go on.

Let us know how you get on

Go here - run the scan for virus check and at least that will give you another attempt to see if the virus can be detected!

I just saw your last post Alan - quarantine - excellent suggestion!;)
