    :cool:

    Well I didn't hardly know what I was doing, but I was able to delete the above worm using eTrust AV program. It ended up in my Gravity dowload folder, so just used the AV prog and ran it against that folder. I'm on XP so there's no DOS of Safe Mode for me; didn't know how I was going to delete it so tried running the AV program against that folder and it worked.

    For anyone's info.

    Log of eTrust run is attached.

    Thats a good job Philo :)

    Glad you were able to remove it.

    Look here for a way how you can restart XP in Safe Mode, just in case you need it some day in the future ;) :

    Symantec's way

    Cheers,
