There is an excellent removal guide here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-smart-virus-eliminator

Scroll down and read the whole thing and DON'T click the first links you see as they are adverts.

thank y for the info

Smiley Happyquick question, if I run this removal will it mess up the McAfee Security suite I have running already. I deleted SVE yesterday, is it gone? then I reinstalled Security suite from Mcafee and cox communications. Am I protected now or do I still need to run this removal.

thanx

I see they recommend running Malwarebytes (free) which might be a good idea, if only to be sure that everything is OK. It wont effect your McAfee applications.
