    Hi again -

    OK, I am obviously not a techie and could use some more advice. I downloaded the NOD32 antivirus program and got the following message:

    trojan Win32/TrojanDownloader.Small.NAR found in operating memory. NOD32 cannot clean this infiltration. No action can be taken on a memory infiltration.

    Does this mean that I don't have any options to remove the virus? Do I have to reformat my hard drive, and if so, does anyone have instructions on how to do so (or maybe being a novice I shouldn't attempt it myself??).

    Thanks! I have a brand new Dell computer and am feeling pretty stressed about this :-(

    Steph

    Hi Steph, simply reboot your computer into Safe Mode and run another scan, this time it should remove it just fine.

    As this is a Nod32 issue I'll move your thread into the Nod32 forum.

    Cheers

    Not necessary to boot to safe mode, just click the Leave button and run the cleaning. Before you do that, configure your NOD32 scanner per Blackspear's instructions at https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=37509.

    After NOD32 finds and deletes the infected file, it will prompt you for a restart. After the restart, the virus will no longer be resident in memory.
