I am trying to fix a Windows 98 second edition laptop with a virus called "W32/Hybris.dll@MM". I tried using the latest versions of McAfee and Norton Anti-virus, but even though both of them are able to recognize the virus, neither of them is able to clean it off the machine.
The virus attached itself to the wsock32.dll file. Unfortunately this file cannot be deleted, copied, moved, edited, etc. because it is used by the operating system.
Has anyone else heard of this virus? If so, does anyone know of how to clean off this virus besides reformatting the entire hard drive? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
