Re: MonaRonaDona "virus"?

This fix worked! I have Vista and had to go into safe mode to delete it. I had Microsoft tech support logged into my pc and they followed the posted directions and it worked with a little work. They had no record of the virus as of yet and they copied the file to submit it. My One Care software did not catch it. I also searched Symantec. Kaspersky and Trend Micro sites for help and none had anything to offer. I could not find any damage to my pc from it. I did notice that the install date was 2-23-08. The file properties said that it was a file from Microsoft. The Microsoft Tech support person I worked with in the virus department was very good. He did a search on the file name and determined that is NOT a Microsoft File!!!

The tech went into the registry to change the setting for the task manager and also had to go there to give permissions in order to delete the file.

Good luck to everyone and thanks for the tip listed above!!
