Could you please advise, reciveing the below, I've downloaded and ran the stinger1001546 tool, but the virus still remains, and Mcafee detects it and the detection alert pops up contineously, even after it states that it has been deleted.

In the C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\temporary internet files folder the following file has been detected: Name: ****.avi Interner Address:****.AVI

When Mcafee detects it, the following appears
Detection: Generic.dx!tq
Action: File deleted
Object: ****[1].avi
Location: C:\Documents...iles\Content.ie5\5nq50zmd

RE: generic.dx!tq

According to McAfee. if up to date, should certainly delete it.
Perhaps it's hiding somewhere.
If you see mention of "System Volume Information" then it's hiding in System Restore, so disabling that temporarily will delete it.

Try booting to Safe Mode, then go to My Computer (XP), Computer (Vista), and right-click the hard drive and select Scan.

You wont see the usual interface but an extra taskbar icon should appear and that will give progress if you hover over it.

Alternatively download the free version of this tool and update it. Then run it and let it clean everything it finds:
