I found a program that I had bought at Staples about a year ago. It's ONTRACK FixIT Utilities. It has a virus scanner that works with WIN95.
I went to their website and downloaded the latest DAT files for viruses. It found a virus in my Windows system ( msrv32.exe.) I tried deleting the file after all attempts to clean the virus with the virus program failed. It will not allow me to delete this application program which seems to be a vital component of the WIN95 System.
Got any ideas how to get rid of this file, since I can't get rid of the virus?
I copied the file to a floppy to show someone at work on Monday. Anyway, it's an executable file and it doesn't say anything about it being a "read only" file.
I used Copernic to find it, too and I couldn't find a thing about it. But what's really weird that it appears that I somehow installed it less than a year ago on my computer.(The Windows 95 OS was installed about 7 years ago on this computer). The logo next to it when I use "FIND" also does not look like a typical Windows logo.
It probably won't let you delete it because it's in use by Windows. Boot into DOS mode & you should be able to delete it.
I found another excellent antivirus program on the WEB. It's by VEXIRA. They are offering a 30 day free trial. It found another virus, called Klex.e . Seems to be a pretty popular worm going around. It infected 90 of my files and destroyed 3 of my programs.
The antivirus program also deletes the infected files that are in DOS upon bootup. So everything is working fine. Thanks for the help!
