Viruses aren't as simple as finding the folder it is in and pressing delete. Didn't your anti-virus application give you the option of quarantining the infecting folders? Unless you know how to use and modify your registry, the only way you're going to get rid of the virus is with the removal tool of an anti-virus application.

Just Google it. You might find that Symantec have a removal tool for it.

Also, what's with all the spam in this thread? You people aren't funny.

1) It's spelt 'whole'.

2) It wasn't funny when Scourge did it, so it's definitely not funny when you do it.

3) Stay out of the thread if you have nothing helpful to say.

You get a cookie.

I found this, not sure if it works or not though. I couldn't find any worthwhile information on the virus.

Go to My Computer >Tools >Folder Options >View tab and select Show hidden files and folders. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended)
option. Also make sure there is no checkmark beside Hide file extensions for known file types. Click OK

go to Start > Run and type Services.msc > click OK

Scroll down and find the service called ---------COM+ Event Schedule (comsch) - Not sure of the exact entry

click the Stop button

change the Startup Type to Disabled

click Apply and then Ok

Next try to find and delete

C:\WINDOWS\system32\comsch.exe ....file


I'll keep looking around and see if I find anything else, I'm suprised there is so little information on it.

all i can say is system restore....

it always does it for me, but if you already tried it, then I dont know.

Make sure you put in an accurate date before you had the virus.

What is the virus doing to your computer? Are you sending spam emails, computer acting sluggish, other problems? The whole purpose of the virus could just be a pathetic attempt to get you to delete your system32 foler, which if you did would crash your computer.

Call Dell. They always know what to do.

it could be worse my friends computer got well and truly ****ed with a really really bad virus because his brother was looking at beast/animal porn or something similar lol

1st: I know how it's spelled it was just a typo,

2nd: I don't have the purpose to crash someones PC, just wanted to be a little humoristic,

3rd: I have the right to post everywhere I want, and you don't have the right to tell me to post or not, especially in a thread that has nothing to do with you, and when I'm not referring to you. So turn around and mind your own business.

Well it wasn't funny, and Smokey has every right to tell you what to do, just because he is Smokey.

You weren't funny or original. That has been posted in about 90% of the computer threads here, it gets dumber everytime someone posts it.

If you aren't going to help then don't post, there are plenty of other threads for you to post pointless/useless crap in.

Whell I know Smokey Amp is considered a great UGer but I saw him many times being a bit rough on UG newbies, and I don't like that.. Didn't mean to be unfriendly though..

EDIT: And just to be of some help here, threadstarter try installing another antivirus like AVG and run a test again. May be for effective, and u can delete the threatning files from the AVG test center.
