Coreflood - what does it do?

  pickaxe 21:34 30 Mar 04

McAfee Virus Scan tells me I have a "CoreFlood" virus. It shows up as files of 7 random letters .exe and .dll in the windows\system32 folder. The files can not be deleted

Any idea what effect this might have? Could it be responsible for occasional crashes of Internet Explorer?

Removal Instructions

All Users:
Use specified engine and DAT files for detection.

Please Note: Due to the nature in which the DLL component of this trojan is injected into the memory space of EXPLORER.EXE, removal from an infected system is complex and requires rebooting into Safe Mode. The following steps should be taken:
Reboot the system into Safe Mode (hit the F8 key as soon as the Starting Windows text is displayed, choose Safe Mode)
Run VirusScan and choose to clean all infected files
Restart the computer
