Ever had a problem like this?

I've tried several different antivirus systems, but each and every of them reported the same file each time I started scanning the computer for viruses. I embraced different options (deleting, moving to virus vault, renamihng) but that doesn't seem to work at all. It keeps reporting that file. I attempted to find it manually by going to the folder specified and eventually found it. However, when I chose "delete" option it said the file was in use and couldn't be deleted! Ever had stuff like this?

    well you can't delete any file if it is opened or running. but you can run your computer in a safe mode and then most of malicious files are inactive so your antivirus should work. you can read safe mode tutorial at: http://www.2-spyware.com/news/post232.html

    Of course i had suffered such a problem before.i still remeber its name" fun.xls".i also tried many antivirus systems but failed.In a desperate state,i turned to "google.com" for help .Many methods did work this time,My PC revived.

    Whatever,the point is not simply the virus or antivirus system,but what we think of both them.you know,antivirus system,a doctor,rather than a useful tool,for this reason maybe the other ppl can be your doctors as well as their useful methods.

    Medicine is perfect only to the right patient.

    So tell us your virus's name first,that is the point:)Then try google or the other search tools,i believe that everything will be OK.

    you can delete it in safe mode but it will come back again and again....

    first disable system restore

    1. right click My computer>Properties

    2. click System Restore Tab

    3. check "Turn of System Restore on all drives"

    4. update your antivirus or your spyware remover and make an emergency disk of it

    restart your system and boot from the emergency disk youve just made..and perform a full system scan!!!
