Hi recently my nortan antivirus has been finding a W32.Licum virus infecting certain .exe's. It seems to focus on my games for some reason. It constantly is in my battlefield 2, and warcraft 3 folder. The autoprotect will start off with one file that will be listed as infected but then cleaned and continue infecting around 10-20 exe's before it stops. In the end result it doesn't seem to do much damage I don't think because they are "cleaned" but every so often I have to reinstall these games and other random programs it attacks because when I double click the icons for them they won't start up at all. I have my virus definitions up to date and I use a corporate symantic antivirus 2005 (My college gave it to me, not really sure what verson it is.)

I am running windows xp pro and I have done many virus scans and nothing is found. What else should I do?

Download and scan with Sysclean Package.
1. Create a new folder on drive "C:\" ("C:\New Folder") and rename it Sysclean.
2. Place the sysclean.com inside that folder.
3. Then download the latest Virus Pattern Files (lptXXX.zip).
4. Extract the lptXXX.zip pattern file into the same folder you created for sysclean.com.
5. Close all open applications and DISABLE your current anti-virus software. Some anti-virus programs such as Avast will alert you to a virus attack when running sysclean so it's best to disable them first.
6. Open the Sysclean folder and double-click on sysclean.com to run.
7. It will take some time to complete. Be patient and let it clean whatever it finds.
8. Exit when done and re-enable your anti-virus program.

Try performing your scan in "SAFE MODE".

Then perform these online Virus scans:
