Windows ME OS

Location C:\_RESTORE\Temp\A0037457.cpy.....to....A0072563.cpy

Across that range of files, there are 209 infected files with the following Virus Attributes:

PE_Magistr.B
Worm_Yaha.G
Worm_Hybris.D

I've used several virus scanning tools that successfully point these files out to me, but cannot clean/delete/quarantine because the "files are in use."

I've tried in Safe mode and normal...with no success. Please assist as this is one of several issues I'm dealing with in trying to clean this computer.

Thank you!

Hi outrag1,

Please do this. Click here to download Hijack This. Run Hijack this.
Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

*Note: When you download Hijack This Do Not download it to a temp folder or to the desktop. Create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This and put it in that folder.

Please go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall P2P NETWORKING.

Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all windows except Hijack This and click Fix checked

Thanks for your continued help. I've followed all your directions. Just as a point to note, the System Restore was already checked as "disable", so I left it like that.

I am unfortunately still facing the original problem where I cannot clean or delete these files below....

Location C:\_RESTORE\Temp\A0037457.cpy.....to....A0072563.cpy

Across that range of files, there are 209 infected files with the following Virus Attributes:

Worm_Yaha.G

Are you positive the system restore is disabled? Because the viruses you mentioned reside in your system restore folder. Do another virus scan with the system restore disabled.

The System Restore was in fact checked (disabled), so ironically, what I did was uncheck it (enable), re-boot and run virus scan. This time it successfully cleaned or quarantined the viruses. I've since left system restore enabled as well.

Thank you for all your help.
