    Updated AVG and ran it this morning, found "VBS\GMW " in file C"\windows\temporay internet files\content\IE5\MM2TAP
    have it quarantined in AVG's virus vault.
    First worm I've found since I bought this computor two years ago.
    Question is, is it safe to just delete it from here?

    Stupid ? but ain't the stupid ?s the easiest to answer? grinz

    Yes.......safe to leave,safe to delete.
    I would also delete temp internet files and turn off system restore,re-boot and set a new restore point.

    ;)
