    Hi. I had found the f0r0r worm with Norton, but of course it couldn't delete it. I have tried to find it with Trend Micro PC-illin and AVG and they didn't find it either.

    I just tried Hijack This and it was found, but don't know if I can just click on the box on the log and delete it.

    How can I do this??

    Would appreciate any help

    Hi Abigail, since you are in the TDS forum now my question:
    did you close all scanners you have and using just one of them to see it, after the other scanner with all the others closed and see again, and with all other scanners closed what did TDS see?
    In TDS you can delete it from the alerts window just like that.
    I would have expected your other scanners --the first that found it-- to have dealt with it, cleansed, deleted, quarantined, making unaccessable for all other scanners and files. So make sure all scanners closed completely before using a next scanner, TDS, whatever.

    There is a good description in Subratam's newsletter about what the nasty does and removal instructions in the bottom. Please follow them carefully step by step.
