Try this:

http://www.precisesecurity.com/computer-virus/wsfdc-may060.htm

The instructions on this site are as follows:

1. Temporarily Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).

2. Download Sysclean by Trendmicro and save it to a directory on your Desktop.

3. Download the latest Pattern Files of Trendmicro and save it to the same location as the Sysclean. Pattern file is in Zip format such as lptxxx.zip (AS/400, S/390, Windows)

4. Extract the contents of the lptxxx.zip on the folder where Sysclean in located.

5. Reboot computer in SafeMode [how to]

6. If it requires you to login please use the login name with administrative rights. Without this privilege, Sysclean will not delete/clean infected files located on System folder.

7. Browse the Sysclean folder on on your Desktop and Double-click Sysclean to run and do a full system scan. This may take time.

Good luck.

I beg your pardon!!!

by OldER Mycroft In reply to I am talking about w32.si ...

What do you mean "I am hanging on that for a week"? - You only originally posted THREE days ago! - In case you haven't noticed, a week consists of SEVEN days.

If you have already used Symantec, you should therefore be aware of how they describe "w32sillyXXXXXXX".

And I quote:
W32.SillyDC - Symantec.com
W32.SillyDC is a generic detection that detects variants of the W32.Silly family of worms that spreads by copying itself to removable media.

I think you'll find the important word there is VARIANTS, therefore whether it has FDC or DC or C at the end, it matters not a whit because they are all variants, AS IN THEY TEND TO VARY!

I would therefore be grateful if you didn't come back here addressing me like some kind of imbecile. I gave you the right information - you were just too dumb to understand that.


Did you visit the site through the link I posted, or did you just follow the posted instructions?


I suggest you try using Spyware Doctor 5.0 - it has been listed as having dealt with the entire "w32.sillyXX (or XXX)" trojan family.

You can download it from here:

Hear from you again in another Short Week.
