I get this infection quite often in spite of my using an updated MS virtual machine and a fully patched system. I have disabled this virtual machine in I.E. in favor of Sun Java's latest plug in. I have SpywareBlaster 3.1, Spyware Guard, Spy bot Search and Destroy, Ad aware and Spy ware Sweeper. My security settings for I.E. 6 are set optimally. The virus evidently can not activate its payload because of the preceding? I can remove it by using NAV 2003 in safe mode and deleting restore points. How can I prevent reinfection? I am using WinXP Sp1. Thanks.
