    Can't find my virus


    Hi everyone,

    I recently went to trendmicro.com and ran their "free online scan". The scan found 6 viruses on my PC. It tells me the name of the virus and the location but when I look for the virus in the location specified, the location doesn't really exist. For example, here are some details on one of the viruses:
    Code:
    Name: HTML NetSky.P
    File: C:\Documents and Settings\My Name\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE\85Y7S1E3\286-000000000CE6952699BF3A243A1E39D1FC5AAD5C104E76400[1]
    Can someone tell where I can find this file?

    Thanks in advance,

    Piet

    Are all the viruses found is in the Temporary Internet Folder? If so, you can empty the folder. Open IE. Go to Tools. Click Internet Options. Under the General tab, there is a Temporary Internet Folder section. Click on the Delete Files... button. A dialog box will pop up. Click to select the Delete All Offline Contents (This will delete EVERYTHING in the Temporary Internet Folder). Click on OK. It will take a few minutes.

    To be on the safe side you can also delete the cookies.

    Do another virus scan.

    HTH!
