Google the name of the virus and check mcafee.com and symantec.com for removal instructions.

tae: thank you for the link. i have another question about the removal. in the instructions, there was this script. "Important: You will have to close all applications before running the
tool (including the antivirus shields) and to restart the computer afterwards.
Additionally you\'ll have to manually delete the infected files located in archives
and the infected messages from your mail client." how do i go about doing this, and, should i restore the infected files from the vault to their original place so that the removal tool can find them. sorry about all the questions. thanks
