Last week I received a call from my uncle who said that his computer was acting weird. Last night I took his laptop home and ran Stinger and found 223 viruses and 5 worms!!! I restarted Windows and ran Stinger again just to see what was lingering. A virus/worm called Exploit-DcomRpc.gen was still there. Stinger could not remove this. So I ran AVG. AVG came up with the above referenced item along with 3 or 4 more which were cleaned... but not Exploit-DcomRpc.gen. I read that I needed to do a Windows update to get the patch(es) for IE so I tried to do this... that's where it got weird. Active X is needed for both a Windows and McAfee update... I reset the IE settings to allow the Active X but yet it won't work. Is this due to the Exploit-DcomRpc.gen? How in the *&^% do I get rid of this virus/worm? How can I get the Active X working again? This one has me a bit baffled.... ;g Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
