    Some guy i know accidently got some VBS **** that changes the file extensions to filename.original_extension.vbs (f.e. loda.mp3.vbs) and deletes the original file. Can anyone tell here what should he do to get rid of it ?

    LoveLetter comes to mind: http://www3.ca.com/virusinfo/virus.aspx?ID=9024

    Symantec has a tool for it: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/fix.vbs.loveletter.html

    But hold on a sec for more comments. I saw our two virus specialists around. They may know of more options.

    Regards,
