    I'm kinda curious how I got this. McAfee caught it immediately. I haven't opened any spam or downloaded anything since my last scan.

    McAfee's website was kinda vague as to how you get this virus. I can't find anything on this virus on Norton's site, but it doesn't appear to be very new. I've got the infected file quarantined now, should I delete it, or leave it in the quarantine folder?

    Thanks

    When you setup your anti-virus programs ALWAYS set the virus program to DELETE the file.

    Unless you are some sort of debugger or write anti-virus programs there is absolutely no reason to quarantine a virus.

    Think about it. It's like catching a crook in your house and locking him in the bathroom.

    Always automatically Delete.

    sometimes when you go to the quarantine folder to delete the virus it will activate again.

    have the virus program delete the file.
