My computer got buzzed by the *tmp.exe virus. There were quite a few. I think I got them all but am not sure about the ones that can hid.

Was going to reformat and have discovered that the operating discs were included in the things I lost in Hurricane Ivan so that can't be done. (Next time I evacuate all computer discs will be going with me.)

I really need help with cleaning please.

Thanks.

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans?

If not, start here:

Download and scan with Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06. Setup & Configure as shown here.
Download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4. Setup & Configure as shown here.
[DO NOT choose the option to install TeaTimer]
Note: If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0 in "SAFE MODE".
Print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Then perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Panda ActiveScan

Post back if your still having problems afterwards.
