Many thanks for providing this link and moving the thread to the correct forum.
I will have to spend some time familiarising myself with this site, which seems to have a wealth of very useful information for techono-idiots like myself...
I did the clean-up which has removed the virus. So great on that score.
However one thing that the virus did was to remove all links from the start menu, so I cannot find any documents, or access things like the control panel. At the moment the only access I have are MSN and Explorer.
How do I re-instate the links?
