Re: Urgent please help…unknown viruses infected W2K3 DCs.

Hi,

I was under the impression you were using AVG but I can see you were using Mcafee since the alias was W32/Sality.gen
The utility in question is provided by AVG and it should work in conjunction with their AV software.
It’ll probably be fine with any other AV but I’d personally use AVG with that particular utility since they are saying it’ll remove it.
Viruses that are memory residents can’t be removed until the system is rebooted.
But removing the virus is only the tip of the iceberg. Getting rid of the aftermath caused by its payload is the problem.
That’s why I’d suggest, after a full virus scan doing several Antispyware scans, checking for any rootkits etc.
