Hi everyone, Just recently discovered these little nasties lurking on my hard drive in the WIN32 folders: WIN32/Obfuscator.VP WIN32/zbot WIN32/Foidan.B would it be safe to manually remove these from this folder? I noticed that my Microsoft Security Essentials programme had been uninstalled. I re-installed it and that is when it picked these critters up. I received Windows updates the night before and everything seemed to be not right after that. My Internet struggles to cope with loading some webpages. I also can't load my DVDFab application up now after clicking the desktop Icon. But I can load the other applications up. Tried everything even though the target path is pointing to the right programme for the DVDFab shortcut icon. Also System Restore is now inoperable, showing the message "Cannot create restore point, please restart computer" which is no use. Its amazing what damage these viruses can do. Can anyone please tell me how to fix the shortcut icon problem? Many thanks.
