I am running McAfee virus scan (the new one for Windows XP). I upgraded to Windows XP on October 25th.

I was doing a scan on my system, and I found something strange. I got 2 virus warnings. It is:

VBS/Pica.worm

It found it in the following directories:

C:\Documents And Settings\My name\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\W1U3416N\amalay[2].html

C:\Documents And Settings\My name\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\SXEF0963\camenter[1].htm

The weird thing is that I don't have IE 5. I have XP which has IE 6. My IE6 is not working properly (you can read my other post by clicking here)

With McAfee you can CLEAN, QUARANTINE, or DELETE.

I tried CLEAN, and it couldn't be cleaned. Should I delete it, or add to the quarantine?

Please post back with any ideas

I just tried to delete the viruses, and it said that they cannot be deleted as they are in use, or are protected.

I tried to put it in the quarantine folder, and it wouldn't let me do that either. Does this mean that I will have to remove it from the registry or something like that?

Please post back with any ideas

I have deleted the temp internet files. I scanned the directory, and it looks like the virus' are gone.

Thanks Rog
