    I got this little bugger today when my son was surfing warez sites. Norton picked it up right away .I  now have three files in quarantine[I could not repair or delete]. One of these is listed as Windows\local settings\temp internet files\content IE5\CTE3CXE3\STARTNOW[1]. js. I did a complete virus scan with no viruses found.
    Am I in the clear now, or it there something else I can do?The computer is working normally. Pop-ups were the trigger for the infection..no file was downloaded or opened other than a webpage. I am using Win95b I.E 5.0 SP2. Thanks

            the following is just a suggestion.....not making any promise that it will definitely work.

           there is a program here at the wilders freetools section  named "spider"....that will clean you idex-dat files.....urls....cookies...temp internet files..history...it works well with win95...............

             did you clean your temp folder?   an then run your anti virus program again....

              there are other programs that will also do the job spider does.....fe: internet sweeper......but I am not really sure of their setting so mention spider......which I've used in the past.

              so as to prevent this from happening again have you considered using a proxy that stops java script....pop-ups..etc?    an if not a proxy then just a simple program that will stop pop-ups.......you may also consider using a script detector...

             imo java and activeX should be disable...in internet explorer...........used only at the most trusted websites.........those you have put in the "trusted zone"

            you can try cleaning your temp folder then deleting those virus files.....may work.....

    Thanks for the reply snowman. I forgot to mention I used a program called DiskCleaner to delete temp internet files, Windows temp files, documents list, but not cookies. Unfortunately, I need some of those cookies. I also have Scriptsentry and the latest NAV definitions.

            you are most welcome......sorry I could not offer more help......my thoughts were that perhaps the files were re-installing themselfs by way of the index.dat file.

            wishing you the best

    Dear MRBLAZE,
    FYI my son is 21yrs. old so you can imagine I have little control over what he does, He was looking, he said, for a "free" version of a game. I tried to warn him about the seamy side of the internet to no avail.

    Dear Spy1,
    What is the best way to delete the virus infected files from quarantine in NAV 2001 PRO? Will selecting delete in the quarantine gui restore the file to its original location, or will it indeed delete it from the hard disk? Thanks for your help. AS you  can see I very wary about these viruses.

    Does deleting JS_Exception from temporary Internet files get rid of it? I have run virus checker over the whole system again and it says there is nothing there, is that good enough?
