It's a P2P virus. My AV program caught it and quarantined it, but I don't know how to "dispose" of it. Thanks for any help.

Your AV should have a repair option in the quarantine folder. But for the sake of curiosity what is the name of the virus?

What AV are you using? Most AV's will allow you to delete the quarantined items.

I'm using McAfee Enterprise 8.0.0 but when the virus alert box comes up, I cannot choose delete file. I've done an online trendmicro virus scan and it comes up with nothing, but I'd feel safer just getting rid of them, lol. I actually got 3 different version of the same thing: one case of Generic VB.b and two cases of W32/alcan.worm!p2p

Try scanning just the folder quarantine and alter the settings Primary Action - change to delete files.

When you scan the quarantine folder this should get rid of the quarantined virus files.

It returned with "no virus found" But they are obviously there because when I right clicked on them to try to just delete them, the virus warning popped up.
