The last few days I have been getting emails that mailwasher suggests have got a possible virus , sure enough my AVG free edition confirms the I-Worm/Netsky.D virus.I then am told that AVG has healed them and no more problem. Today I again had a suspicious email that mailwasher said was a possible virus , but before anything else could happen I ran AVG that confirmed again the same virus but said it could not remove it .
Why could it remove the same virus 5 times previously and not today , and what do I do now to get rid of it, please help
P.S. Win XP Home , and if it helps I can give the name of the file it is in , it has only infected one file.

disable system restore maybe and run another scan.

re enable again after deleting anything found.do not heal just delete.

ah..AVG said it may be a virus?

i may be wrong but if you are only opening the mail in mailwasher then its still on your isp`s server so i dont think avg would detect it untill you try to download it.

not that that helps you
