I have a virus that has been detected in my comp. I have norton and mcafee but it didnt help unless i used the program incorrectly. I did search and scan on my computer with mcafee and it gave one file that i might not want so i tried to quarantine it and it wouldnt let me, i also tried to fix it and it wouldnt let me, and i also tried to delete the file and it still wouldnt let me. Could somebody help me fix this issue. Thank You

Do you know the name of the virus? Have you tried any other anti-malware programs or scans?

In addition to the scans recommended in the link provided by rowal5555, if your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0 in "SAFE MODE".
Be sure to print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

If these scans resolve your problem, then a hijackthis log may not be needed. Let us know how you do with them first.
