The first thing you can do to enhance your chances of detecting and cleaning a virus is to make sure both your Engine and DAT files are up to date.
If you have a system where you can do a test scan, you may wish to try our beta Daily DATs to get the latest detection available. You can find this on our web-site at:
If you are still infected we would need a sample for analysis. Please send us a sample for analysis, in a password-protected ZIP file (password - infected).
You can find detailed instructions for how to do this at <http://vil.mcafeesecurity.com/vil/submit-sample.aspx>
Please include a description of the symptoms your system is experiencing, and any pertinent information about what AV Products you are using including company, version number (engine/dat numbers for McAfee Products) and results of the scan.
