    hi,

    i have a dual boot system with fedora core 1 taking precedence over Win98 i.e. i can access windows files through linux , but not the other way round.

    recently i have been infected with a virus called as "jeefo" which infects all *.exe files.It is well known that this virus installs itself as SVChost.exe and then places an entry in the Registry so that it is assured of starting at every startup and thereafter infects all files with the .exe extension making them utterly worthless....these files are no longer recognised as Win32 application files.

    the problem is that any antivirus installed later detects itself as infected because all windows executables have a .exe extension, and so does the antivirus software.

    i have tried the safe mode and editing the registy but the "regedit" file seems to have been modified.

    i already have both windows as well as linux versions of F-prot but am at my wits end... I do not know how to get rid of this problem.

    please help.
