Hi all,

I don't know if this is the right place to post, but here it is.

McAfee told me it had found a Trojan earlier today, so I left it scanning, and it said it had deleted the file. Weird thing is, when I rebooted, it popped up and told me that zapchast.reg had been cleaned from a.bat. So I scanned the PC again (clean) and ran 4 or 5 seperate spy/adware programs, all clean. Still, every time I boot up, McAfee tells me that a.bat is cleaned. Should I be worried? And if so, what should I do about it? I'm pretty technophobic really, although this is the first virus problem I've ever had. Any ideas?

A user does not need to run a VBScript file, or read an e-mail message to get infected; it spreads over open network shares.
If you are on such a network, other computer(s) may be reinfecting you.
You can follow McAfee's instructions for removal. It is best to run any antivirus or antispyware program in safe mode. McAfee's instructions are in the link above.
