Virus Win:mytob-MT How do i get rid

  Nessie 10:52 24 Oct 05

Keep doing an upto date spyware and virus checks and this virus keeps coming up and even though I delete it, it is still there. Any ideas how to get rid. Before checking for virus my hard drive kept being accessed all the time and someting was on the internet all the time whether I was on it or not. Have router with firewall, XP Pro,Avast anti virus and adaware spy ware. Have broadband and IE6. Any help would be great.

have you run a scan with restore disabled?

no but did it in safe mode

This is where the virus restarts its self so can I delete the whole file or some of what is in it.

not sure if that removes restore and i am pretty sure it does not as entering safe mode still gives an option to restore.

You need to switch off system restore. this will delete all restore points to date.

run the AV scan and delete the virus

reboot the PC and switch restore back on and create a restore point.
