Default Help, I got a W32/IRCbot virus

Mcafee found it, and I deleted, but computer's acting strange and cuts on and off. Please advise, any help will be greatly appreciated. Running Win XP. Computer less than a year old.

Try doing a restore to a date before the virus was found. Read the restore function first, there may be a certain procedure to insure the virus doesn't come back.

Did you make a rescue disk for Mcafee or did one come with the machine? Boot off the rescue disk and it should walk you through the rest.

Yep they don't write Virii for Mac's yet.. Mac is up to what, 10 users now?

With Mac's surge in popularity from deciding to conform, just wait.. It's gonna get interesting for Mac users!

Jealous? Please.. I work in IT.. Microsoft keeps me in new boats!

If all the worlds infastructures would have been Mac based I probably would have had to persue my second career choice, Porn Star!
