My Norton AntiVirus detected a Trojan Horse virus. I am running Win 98 sec.edition. It told me to do a backup of the registry (scanregw), however that is one of the infected files that norton has quarantined. I don't want to do a regedit without backing up first. Then norton is suggesting I delete all infected files. I don't want to screw up my new computer. Please help. :freaked:

Hi Karin, <br/> <br/> you can go ahead and delete the infected file you need to make sure you have a clean registry before you back it up,so do that first and then do what norton tells you. <br/> <br/> Eagle :smilewinkgrin:

You can delete it manually like karin. <br/> <br/> do it from the regedit. <br/> <br/> Eagle :smilewinkgrin:
