Recovering system file from Cabs - after virus attack
Posted on 2002-07-27
I have a W98 system. There must have been an undetected virus on my system; because today after I ran PC_Illon (my virus detector) after updating it, PC_Illon reported a virus called PIF_Woode, and quaranteened a Windows file called "Exit To Dos.PIF"
My question is, how do I restore that PIF file??
I dont know if there are unprintable characters in that file name, or what; because I tried to use SFC to resore it from my Windows CD, and my Windows SP1 CD. In neither case could it find the file.
BTW, that virus must have been on my system for a while, because I restored "Exit to Dos.PIF" from my backup file, reran the virus checker, and that too was infected.
Thanks for the help!
