    Hello all,

    I was wondering if someone has any REMOVAL instructions for the W32.HLLW.Lioten virus (im not sure if its categorised as virus or trojan, so sorry if i put it in the wrong forum) which creates IRAQ_OIL.exe.


    Thnx so much for your input.

    I don't have removal instructions but this decribes the worm and most importantly how to close the security hole that IO uses:

    Hey thnx for the support !

    Did the online scan and it deleted most entries, except for this one :

    c:\WINNT\system32\sus\explorer.exe

    It was in use

    Is this related to that virus as well?

    thnx so much
