Cannot delete Mitsrow.pif Access is denied. Source file may be in use
Posted on 2006-03-21
I cannot delete winaiva.exe (w32.spybot.worm), or mitsrow.pif and about 20 SFFxxx.tmp files within a shared folder ( or not shared) on my network in safe mode or any mode.... I have been thru the registry per Symantec Instructions to rid myself of this virus and Symantec AV is no longer registering the virus as a virus since I deleted the files from the registry (Only in two areas), however I still need to delete the files from my network..... Error when deleting the files is ....... Cannot delete mitsrow.pif. Access is Denied. Source file may be in use. My network consultant has tried various programs such as kill.exe, etc....with no results......
Not sure if this is related because of timing factors, however I have 5- 3Com Switches on this floor and 1-3Com Switch on the 2nd floor. Every 3 weeks or so, and or sometime every couple of days, the same switch will have a solid orange packet light and most users are calling with the dreading hour glass....I need to unplug the switches in order to get the flow of traffic up and running again....
Help me.....I can't take it anymore!.....Please
