Has anyone heard of a worm called "I-worm/yaha.G?" I have had a warning that I have got this but I have ran 3 Anti Virus and 2 worm scanners but they can't find it . Anyone got any ideas of what the hell to do????????
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
I got the warning"I-worm/yaha.G has been found" Then it said something about it being in System Restore. It also said to run AVG to remove from computer but it didn't find it ....I'm gonna kill my daughter as it came from one of her e-mails.She signs up for god knows what so her e-mail address is everywhere...Thanks for all your help .I am trying the link damnyank just gave me so we'll see how it goes
