    Got hit by a virus.... cleaned everything with 2 exceptions...
    win32.dll
    and
    IE_PACK.exe

    Message from Norton's says, delete and reinstall new files.
    Where do I find them, can anyone supply them to me via email?

    Thanks for all the help.

    Those are not windows files, probably files from the virus, I have neither on my machine with win98 or 2k.

    Are you having a problem or just double checking the message.

    Moving to security for the virus guys and girls :)

    I don't know.... I did a virus check using Norton 2002, it can't clean either of them, so it asked me to quarrentee them.

    Date: 11/30/01, Time: 23:04:58, HP Authorized Customer on PAVILION
    The file C:\WINDOWS\WIN32.DLL is infected with the W95.MTX.dr virus.
    Unable to delete the file.

    The file C:\WINDOWS\IE_PACK.EXE is infected with the W95.MTX.dr virus.
    Unable to delete the file.

    So I was then prompted to replace it.
    And while they are in quarentine, everything still seems to be working ok.
    Any thoughts?

    Downloaded and ran what Symantec provided... guess I'll send myself an email and test it out....
    Thank you both for the advice.
