viruses: which files can I just delete...and what to do with the others please?
Posted on 2004-07-31
I have just done a Norton scan for viruses, as I felt I had one, but my AVG was missing them all
Anyway, i got the results below, but don't really understand how to remove them using the advice on the Norton website!
I was just wondering if people could tell me how to get rid of them...what files can i just delete, and what need special treatment?! I think the sp.dll one can't just be deleted given it's date of creation for example!
Thanks in advance :-)
