My sisters comp has been hit by w32 swen I think by the M/S update e-mail, I have the removal / cleaning tool from Symatec but cannot access the floppy at all, I only have the empty desktop screen with no Icons and no start button or task bar. Can anyone suggest a way I can do it please?

Regards Star

1) Microsoft NEVER s4nd emails to the public warning of virus attacks or updates. The email you received was a virus from a third party. Never open attachments etc on emails that you are unsure about. Microsoft do not send attachments.

2) for details of removing the virus.......[email protected]" title="http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/[email protected]" TARGET="_new">click here and the removal tool is here.........[email protected]" title="http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/[email protected]" TARGET="_new">click here

Thanks Gandalf but I have the tools already, What I am asking for is how can I get past the desktop screen to use the floppy on which I have saved the removal tools and cleaner, I cannot gain access into Safemode

Finally resolved, with a 98 bootup disk allowed me to get into Safemode and run the w32 swen remove/cleaner now all running Ok, A point here my Sister had not updated her virus definitions dispite being told how important it is,she was also using the preview pane to read her e-mails. Maybe now she will listen to me, or maybe not!!

Many thanks Gandalf
