View Full Version : Sorry, Team Tiberius, you'll have to wait while I slay this virus...

I opened an .SCR file in an attachment (stupid!) and now after a reboot Windows Explorer takes forever to open and Ctrl+Alt+Delete gives me a "program not responding" error, as does Juno (my e-mail program) and NortonAV. The cheapest fix I can find is a couple days for $60.00 plus a $40.00 NortonAV one-year update. So it might be a bit before I'm back on.

But, on the bright side, I got more work done on Lord Bumfrey's Mansion yesterday than I have in any other one day. Things are definitely taking shape, and the place is really getting big.

Sounds like a familiar virus to me(especially the .scr extension) since some idiot has been sending this to me all day it's probably the W32.Yaha virus
It can be another one though, try the removal tool (http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/tools.list.html) from Symantec's website :)

Oh and it's free

TR26, I have Norton AV 2002 and I don't have to pay for the virus updates:confused: You should be able to get them free;)
