Symantec unable to remore W32.Korgo.W. I support the laptops in the office and Sysmantec finds W32.Korgo.W on one of my users but is unable to remove it and just quarintines them. I ran Symantec from the safe mode and it has found more than 6000 files and just on the letter G's... If anyone can help I'd appreciate it very much.

Thanks but that was what I tried and it ran over night finding 10,000 afected files and was only up to the files with the letter G and was never able todelete any of them but was able to Quaritine them and there were no entries in regedit. It never finishes. It's like the darn thing keep populating itself as to where you can't keep up..

Thanks
Dan
