OR
1. first quantinee the exe files through some antivirus
2. delete the dc.exe and fun.exe files by searching the computer
3. delete the entries of these file from registry
4. delete their pf extension files from the computer
5. boot in safe mode
6. restore the computer to a just before virus effected date.

Hi,

Fun.exe is not the virus name. There are a lot of viruses using this file name. You have to check the displayed name when your antiviurs catchs it.

If the virus is W32.Imaut.AS, here is how you remove it:

also if your system restore is enabled, disable it before removing the virus.
