How to clean

by Armour In reply to getting and sirC32.exe er ...

There are a few steps you will need to get rid of the Viris first open the dos prompt and you will need to go to c:\windows
then type rename regedit.exe this will allow you to open the registry
Now the registery is a delicate part of the system and can cause great damage to your operating system and need care to only remove whats needed
go to start,run and type regedit

go to hkey_class_root (this is the same for all ms os)exefile\shell\open
command double click on default and remove all but the
"%1" %*
Then go to hkey_local_machine,software and scroll dow till you find the Sircam highlight it and delet it.

and delet the key Driver32=%System%\scam32.exe

Close the regedit and now you can update and run antiviris software
This viris come in the e-mail system and will have an attachment something like doucumentname.doc.pif the two three letter extention (double extention)is a sign that it as a virs of sorts and should not be opened
