HELP! Infected with virus...
Posted on 2002-04-05
I've just been hit with the Klez.E@mm virus, which has infected Norton's (so that it won't run, although it does still pick up atempts to run infected programs), Stay Connected, Textpad and, worst of all, kernel.exe. I've downloaded a trial of McAfee, and that agrees that kernel.exe is infected and recommends deleting it and replacing it with an uninfected copy.
problem is, where would I get an uninfected copy _from_? isn't the kernel the core of the OS? I don't want to go aroud deleting that, do I?
any help much appeciated - and I need it quick, please...
