A virus scan picked up JOKE GESCHENK.A in the C:\_RESTORE\ARCHIVE\FS904.CAB

I've never heard of this one and a web search hasn't helped.

Default Not a virus

The file JOKE GESCHENK.A ended up being a joke (Coke.exe) and not a virus. That still doesn't solve the problem though.

What is happening is the computer will go through the POST when booting up and then stop and displays "press delete to continue" Once you click the delete button it will start windows normally. I don't know what is causing that!!!

Ive had 2 pc's lately with the same problem, I ran fdisk and deleted the partition, fdisk again and create primary dos partition, format c:, then reinstall the o/s. I dont think that if it was a virus that it would survive this procedure, just make sure the boot disk u use is write protected.
