Hi there - I'm new to bleepingcomputer, so hello all!!

After a nasty spam attack, my computer wasn't functioning properly and i decided my best way out was to format and install a fresh copy of XP. I installed a fresh copy and got all my anti-virus, firewall and spyware detection software up to date to prevent future attacks. It worked for a while until a scan revealed that i have a nasty virus called Bck/VB.XB and all anti virus software does is detect it, but does not dis-infect it which is annoying because its slowing down my computer immensly!! I couldnt find any methods to manually remove the virus, infact i cant find much info on the virus at all!

Does any one know how i can get rid of this virus??

I ran a ComboFix but that also didnt detect the virus. I have the log if any one is able to read it?

P.S. Panda Anti-Virus is detecting 5 of the same virus

Best Regards,
Dean
