What does your antivirus software tell to you about this ?

So effectively you have no anti virus software.

Remove McAfee and install AntiVir - http://www.free-av.com /

David, I hate to be disageable, but I also hate people who cannot restrain
themselves to dictate their preferences.

Whatever the antivirus software is, the professional answer is "renew then
update your AV".

Let the guy decide if he wants to change for an other one later. This is
what this news group is made for.

Actually, people don't renew their AV even when they know it out of date
because of cost. There are free AV or almost free AV that are not as
clumsy as McAfee and that do a better job than McAfee.

Personally, when I run into people using McAfee I encourage them to
switch to something else. I can't tell you how many McAfee systems I've
run into that were not even updated, not once, and the users though they
were fully protected and getting daily updates.

So, the professional answer is to direct them to an AV product they can
use, will use, and will be able to keep updated.

Learn more about PCBUTTS1 and his antics and ethic and his perversion
with Porn and Filth. Just take a look at some of the FILTH he's created
and put on his website: http://www.futurehardware.in/595578-2.htm all
exposed to children (the link I've include does not directly display his
filth). You can find the same information by googling for 'PCBUTTS1' and
'exposed to kids'.

Re: unknown virus that delete zip and jpeg file

If they install their AV by themselves (McAfee or whatever) it works and it
updates properly.

The problem is that usually the machines are sold with an AV bundeled on it
and nobody tells the buyer he must register the product first.

That is your prerogative BUT...

AntiVir is *better* than McAfee.  Both in its catch rate and in adding new
signatures.

Kaspersky and NOD32 are the two best.  Many rank Kaspersky slightly higher than
NOD32 but
consumes more resources than NOD32.

I find I can submit samples to Kaspersky and get recognition within a few hours
and
signatures generated and posted not long after that.
