    It is necesary to delete those files in SAFE MODE or when the windows is shout down,
    what meens after booting from system disk (in this case knowladge of DOS commends can very useful).
    Before deleting files you must turn off their attributes HIDDEN, SYSTEM and READONLY.


    To run system in SAFE MODE press F8 button during booting system till "START MENU" will apear,
    after these choose SAFE MODE.


    NOTE!!!

    If it is Windows ME, impossible is to delete *.CPY files in SAFE MODE, it is neccesary
    to turn off recovering system and then after rebooting system there will be no problem.
    To do this go to "Control panel" -> "System" -> "Capacity" -> "File system" -> "Solving problems" -> "Turn off system recovery"


    If it is Windows XP, to delete files from "_restore" catalog it is neccesary to turn off "system recovery".
    To do this right click on "My computer" -> "Properties" -> "System recovery" -> "Turn off system recovery on all disks"

    Did you try our software it's avalible under:

    www.arcabit.com

    Propable some registry entries responsible for downloading this trojan has been left thats why it's comming back. If you are using Internet Explorer I suggest to change your browser
    from Internet Explorer to other safer e.g.:

    - Netscape: http://channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/default.jsp
    - Opera: http://www.opera.com/download/
    - Mozilla: http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/
    - Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/
    - Thunderbird: http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/
