    I am taking care of 20 computers in an internet cafe when this win32.sillyfdc popped in one of the workstation. I did not panic because AVG Antivirus successfully deleted the file but the other day all computers were infected and though AVG Antivirus deleted the virus, it comes back and menaced my customers. I have tried installing Trend Micro PC-cillin, Norton Corporate, AVG OEM but still, the virus exist and menacing my network…Guys Help.

      1) turning off system restore

      and 2) then booting into safe mode and running your anti-virus?

      This is the solution to many of these virus reapprearing problems.

        If you are running a network, you might have to do what JamesRL said, but one computer at a time. The virus may be propogating thru your network, and you are going to be chasing it forever.

      Below is a link to instructions for manual removal. But as you are networked, you will need to keep the clean computers turned off until you have ALL the computers cleaned.
