Live One Care wont get rid of a virus??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently purchased Live One Care, but am disappointed as it is unable to remove the virus that is on my computer.  The virus is some sort of trojan dropper.  When my computer boots onecare continually notices it, but I contine to tell OneCare to remove it.  However, the same notice continues to pop up...any suggestions?  Thanks in advance.

  • Unfortunately, it would appear that the infection is being restored at boot, meaning that it wasn't completely removed and may reside in the startup cache or even the System Restore points.

    If you are using Windows Live OneCare and you have been infected, but OneCare did not detect or cannot remove the malware, please contact support to report this and for help with removal.
