    I fell for the "microsoft Patch" and it infected me. I thought I would simply roll back and I did but it keeps bringing me mail (183) although I delete them, they come back again. They are all related to the virus (oddly enough all my spam has stopped - as well as real mail I am not getting)

    I followd the symantec removal instructions for win98. All the way into step 4 "deleting the value from the registry". But when I navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run as instructed and then try to "delete the randomly named value that the worm created in the right pane"
    I don't know what the value is.

    Can anyone help me? I don't want to take out something that should be there. Please.....

    Thanks, Frank

    I'll have to monitor here because I don't want to go through the 183 again!!
