How to get rid of them


  • Don't panic!

  • If you detect viruses in your files they should be deleted and replaced with the original clean version.

  • If it is a 'Boot Sector or Partition Virus' then use a virus removal program (viruses at essex.ac.uk)

  • For all virus removal you should boot from a "clean disk" with the write protection on.

    This will help prevent the spread of the virus to the disk and your computer being infected again.
