Hi, I've followed the Virusburst removal instructions up until item 13.16 which asks me to open the SmitRem folder I previously created on my own user desktop. But in the safemode and logged in as administrator this folder doesn't appear on the desk top. What should I do now please? Thanks

Hi I found the only way I could remove VirusBurst was to run Prevx1, all other ways failed

Thanks Sconny for the reply.
I don't know what prevx1 is?, but I did copy the Smitrem folder to my c drive and the back onto the administrator desk top in safe mode and followed the remaining instructions. I ran all the virus checkers again and it's been deleted.
thanks again for you advise.
