Symantic keeps finding this virus. A box pops up telling me that W32.LICUM was found in a file, but the file was cleaned, and access is now allowed. This happens a few times each day. The last 2 files that it cleaned were:

ieuninst.exe and vgxuninst.exe.

The question is, if the virus was cleaned and I can access the files, how do I ever get rid of it. Doing a complete system virus scan shows nothing, since the program previously cleaned it.

Is there any way around this enegma, other then turning off the error reporting in Symantic? ( If that is even possible ).

Thanks.

Im going to send you over to the Security Forum, you may have other issues going on. Please follow these instructions

Download and install: HiJackThis.

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents, as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Then doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Do A System Scan And Save Log". Make sure all Windows and Browsers are closed.
When the scan is finished, best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackthis.


IMPORTANT!!!
Create a New Topic and include a fresh HJT log in the HiJackThisLog Help Forum and Copy/Paste the info from your saved Hijackthis log file into your new topic.

A Moderator/ Security Team Analyst will give you instructions.


***DO NOT TRY TO FIX ANYTHING, MAJOR DAMAGE CAN BE DONE TO YOUR SYSTEM IF THIS TOOL IS USED INCORRECTLY, PLEASE WAIT FOR AN ANALYST/MODERATOR TO GIVE YOU INSTRUCTIONS***


Always describe your problem and any programs you have used to try to resolve your issue. Your description can go a long way to solving/repairing your particular issue.

Has this problem been resolved?
I have the same problem, though with XP (system restore is switched off).
Are there any suggestions how to eliminate this virus?
