Bo:heap Mcafee Virus Removal - Please Help


Recommended Posts



My laptop came down with the BO:Heap virus. McAfee shows a pop-up every few minutes that a buffer overload has been blocked. IE crashed & doesn't open at all. Random pages kept opening on firefox. The system shut itself down after sometime. Upon restarting the laptop & running a virus scan again, I still keep getting the same buffer overload pop-up from McAfee.


I basically need to have the malware removed. I read other related posts where the same problem has been solved, but couldn't follow it beyond a certain point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
