Hello, I just cleaned up my Computer after getting the w32Cholera2 Virus and this is what it infected>> inetwiz.exe and the isignup.exe Now i was told these two items have ONE OR MORE files in them and they were damaged behind repair, so i had to delete them both (I found out there were two files in each one of them! Can anyone tell me what these two exe's are? Also I had to delete these>>>A0003513.exe A0003514.exe A0003515.exe A0003516.exe A0003517.exe (Can anyone tell me what these are too? Can I replace them or do a system restore? Please let me know, and Thank You,

The Inet files are used with Internet Explorer to setup an internet connection.

The ones that all start with A, I have no idea about.

Brooks, Thank You for the info and you were correct! Not only did it destroy my inetwiz.exe file and the isignup.exe file but I think it created all those other files because i could not find them on the xp and I want to worn everyone who gets this w32/cholera2 virus, that it will MUTIPLY the Virus in each one of these files (phony files or not) EVERYTIME YOU REBOOT. I got 57 Viruse's before it hit me that they were multipling on Reboot! Thanks also to a very alert friend of mine. So I got rid of it a COMPLETLY by Running a FULL VIRUS SCAN OFFLINE and it took almost one full hour, because i had to MANUALLY DELETE the destroyed files. Also I was emailed the downloads for the missing Original Files EXE'S and I was going to reinstall them BUT it was not necessary, it seems windows xp replaced it for me by itself, because everything is back to normal and i still have the connections wizard (Go Figure)! I ran a second full scan just to make sure and i am now clean!
