Windows XP
Firefox

I picked up the TR/Dldr.WMA.Wimad.N virus. I have the antivir software which detects. I use the scan which deletes all the files but when I start my computer again I still seem to have the virus (i keep getting popups from my antivir telling me that they have detected new suspicious files)

I tried it in both safe mode and normal mode.

help me be free of this virus

the files are usually wma or mp3 downloaded from limewire or other P2P programs

you can download them faster than your AV can find them

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Thanks DaChew,

I think you're right, it keeps downloading stuff. How do I permanently get rid of the virus?

Did your anti-virus provide specific file names associated with this malware threat and if so, where are they located (full file path) at on your system?
