Please make sure that in the future your DCC is [b]not[/b] set to autoget or autoaccept. It is a good idea to scan all files you download with a virus scanner and a trojan scanner with updated defintions first.

Yeah i will set it to autoget, but i download loads of stuff and leave it running so i need to be able to let it download automatically.

Has anyone got any ideas on how to get rid of it, ive been on the mcafee chat rooms and they have told me to run the scan in safe mode and command prompt. ive tryed this and have had no luck it still gets stuck on the windows folder. they have told me that i should delete the temp internet files and this may stop the freezing, i tryed but it still gets stuck before i can finish the scan. maybe the windows/inf is the infected folder. im thinking of formatting becuase its alot of trouble trying to get rid of the virus and it will prob still be bad and have problems if i get rid of the virus.
the name of the irc worm is called the avert or advert virus, it got sent me to as .txt.shs

thanks any help appreciated on how to get rid of this ***** virus
