KLEZ again!

By TobeJ ·
Hi there,

I am working on a computer that has been infected with the KLEZ worm virus, I have used a couple of removal tools MCFE Stinger / NAV KLEZ remove. I did find 288 virused files, 8 which were restored, and the rest deleted. Since then I have reinstalled Norton AV, which does come up and sits in the system tray with auto protect on, I can run a virus scan from scheduled tasks,
but when I try to open it up, it does not open. Also the e-mail client will not connect to the
POP server from the ISP, I can setup another profile and go to another ISP and connect, but not to the original.

Any ideas?

Tx

I f you have 288 infected files , you should seriouslyt formatting the disk and re-installing. Back up any dat files (letters, e-mails, configuration files for apps), and format the drive. After you re-install the OS, install an Norton or McAfee, orany AV program BEFORE connefting to the Internet, and get the updates for the AV program before you run any other programs.

Cheers

When Norton Antivirus is installed and the Email Scanning option is turned on then the original POP3 is replaced by norton's address. For restoring back to the normal account please disable the option of Email Scanning from Norton Antivirus and the changes will be incorporated automatically on the POP3 dialog box. If the changes are not occuring, please fill in the POP3 address and you should be able to send and receive the e-mails as usual.
