Getting rid of ripper virus
Posted on 1997-10-10
My back-up computer, a Packard Bell 486sx with overdrive
processor at 50mhz, has the ripper virus. I can't seem to
get rid of it. I have tried using mcafee anti virus and
norton anti virus and neither will get rid of the virus.
When I run either program (from clean floppy disks) it
gives me the message that I should reboot from a clean
floppy and run the program again but when I do, I get the
same message again. It is strange because the virus infects
floppy disks that use and I inadvertantly passed the virus
to 2 other computers, however the procedure that mcafee
and norton recommend work on these other 2 computers but
not on the Packard Bell. Any Ideas?
