MY Mcafee virus scan says that I have a virus called Alcan Worm. When I try to clean, delete or quarantine it the computer says that the disk is write protected and things like that. help?

I have also found references on the net that Ewido will clear your problem. You can download a free 14 day trial click here
I have tried it and although it found nothing on my machine it seems OK.

ewido is for windows 2000 and I only have windows ME!

it just deleted a lot of malware. Mcafee says that the disk is write protected: The file could not be cleaned/deleted/quarantined!

Please post a Hijack this log. Someone like Nellie2 could help, she is the expert.
