Hi,
I clicked on my printer program and this warning virus message came on. Said I have this virus...
JS:Flooder-NewsAgent-3
My antivirus wouldn't delete it or repair it. Anyone know what this is and how I can fix this problem? Where did it come from? I run win98se and have dsl, 2 antiviruses and a router, hard wired.
Thanks in advance..Cheryl :sad:

Most of this I have already done, but I am printing it out as a guide to go through point by point. I do have adwarese and the other software you recommended but lately all these trojans and viruses have slipped throu all my protections. Everyone I know is having the same problems. I emailed the manufacturer of my router for any firmware updates too since it has a built in firewall.
It is really getting near impossible for us to keep out systems safe and secure any more.

Do you mean this line? "Try this scan at Panda as well." If you click on the underlined word this, it will take you to Panda's site for a free online virus scan. Or you can click here instead:

To help keep the bad stuff out, install SpywareBlaster (link in crunchie's signature). Keep it updated too! (For a little info on it, you can see this thread: http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/thread11373.html)

With DSL, you should also have a hardware firewall and a software firewall.

Please do not PM HJT logs.

Did you mean the above line? That is part of my signature & appears in all my replies :).
