oh no Michelle, hows it going this morning?
any luck fixing it?

have you got a start key on your keyboard (one with a pic of the winsows logo on it)

Press that and use the cursers, really hope you fix it, have searched the net, but cant find a removal tool or anything for it, seems its a new worm, :(

will keep trying and text you with any info

Have tried all your links here still not getting rid of it. Jayne done the one you text me aswell, no joy. My brother in law will have a look tomorrow nite see if he can do anything.
mmmmmm got this bloody EZ Firewall Lite Alert that keeps coming up asking me do I want to allow things to access the internet but I can't click on them and can't get rid of the big window it comes with either so can't read the screen very well. Cannot delete the firewall either as it starts automaticaly when i try to it says shut it down first arghhhhhhhhhhh.

This worm I have was in a file called 'Jenifer'. My sister is named Jennifer <<2 n's. SO I am thinking it could be something like what Rachel B got , she got an email from an addy almost like mine, maybe I opened something I thought was from my sis :( :confused: .

Gonna be bored senseless till I get rid now lol.

Anyone fancy a little party here at my house?

Bummer nightmare worm u got there
try the online virus scan here see if it can remove it

but need the propper spelling of it if u can..

Or if u have got a system restore date set type this in the run command box
that command will run system restore but it will only work if u have a date set..

hi michelle, sorry to hear about your virus. i've just tried what jayne said, & u can get to system restore on the keyboard, the windows key is two to the right of the space bar key....press it, u then use the cursor direction keys to get to system restore, via start, then programmes, then accessories, then system tools, then system restore... sorry but i dont know much about comps, hope your system restore might put your virus into hibernation til u get to the bottom of it... good luck, rick.x graemlins/beer.gif

I have ran loads of virus checks now and none of them are showing anything :confused: .

All I would like now is for the cordless mouse to work. Wonder if I got a lend of a plug in mouse would it work? means i could try sort out this virus (if there is still one) much quicker.

Hi Michelle!

Sorry to hear you haven't had much luck with the virus. I hope it gets better soon!

As for your invitation, I would love to come to your party, but the 24 hours of travelling might mean I will miss the event!! So please have a few drinks in my absence!!!

Mouse has new batteries, but whatever happened last nite has infected the mouse hardware as far as i can tell. Earlier today i was getting a balloon from wizard telling me it had found new hardware and to click here to install it, but i couldn't work out how to get the cursers to it. I am using Alt and Tab to manouver around , hard work it is. Is there a way for me to get to the pop up balloon if it decides to show again?
