I'm using WinXP SP2 version 2002, IE6. My AVG free 7.1 Resident Shield keeps detecting I-Worm/Stration in C:\WINDOWS32. I've run all the scans suggested in Safe Mode as well as normal, including VCLEANER & HouseCall, I've tried them all and all up to date but nothing can rid me of these infections. My Virus Vault is loaded with over 240 of these bugs and is brimming over 13.9 MB. Guess I'll just have to try HJL? Unless you can think of something else

Note: Some viruses can stop the action during the removal process. In this case rename the vcleaner.exe to some different exe file (e.g. something.exe). Restart your computer in Safe mode (recommended) and run the remover on the infected computer.

Hi Sweets :

antiVIRUS program(s) are NOT that good with resolving trojan and/or worm problems;
I hope you have MORE than an antivirus program for security on your computer !?
At a minimum should have 2 antiSPYWARE/antiTROJAN programs to "deal" with the
trojans, worms, etc and I recommend you start with "SUPERantispyware" from
http://www.superantispyware.com ; I have its "FREE" version . Another recommendation
would be AVG antispyware ( formerly known as "Ewido" ) available from :
http://www.ewido.net/en/ .

AND I hope you are using a 3rd party firewall rather than that 1-way one that comes
with XP SP2 !?

You MAY need to "empty" your AVG antiVIRUS "vault" just prior to running the
"Full System" Scans of the antiSPYWARE/antiTROJAN program(s) to have them
effectively "dealt" with !? I am unsure on this point .
