I am sending this from my laptop because it is my PC that is infected by this Resident Shield Alert.
I have tried various antispayware programmes and antivirus programmes to get rid of this virus, all to no avail!
The resident shield alert tells me that I have a Trojan Horse Downloader.VB.7.Y and the infected file is C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\winupd
Furthermore, after re-booting my desktop now has a white background with "Active Desktop Recovery" superimposed on it. Clicking on 'restore my active desktop' does nothing so I assume it is all part of the virus.
Please can you help me remove this virus.
Many thanks in anticipation
