If your Anti Virus found it, it most likely has quartined it already, before it had any access to your PC, usually the AV will say your email has been infected with so and so virus, and say that it has been quartined, or if you have Norton look in the quartine section, for future removal of virus I suggest you download AVG, look at my aig for the link under Virus: It scans and tells ou that it has been removed so you dont have to worry about manual removals, I would run your AV scan just in case and download AVG, remember it is free, so its good to have like to AV....

Yes Novarg is dangerous, it is also commonly known as W32.MyDoom.A and the rest of the A B varints, click on this link for more info on MyDoom:http://pcpitstop.ibforums.com/index.php?act=ST&f=9&t=38720

 

Here is the removal tool if you were infected with Novarg aka MyDoom: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcen...moval.tool.html

 

The removal tool removes both W32.MyDoom.A and .B Try this and a AV scan :nuke: .

 

Please post back any deveolpments if this does not help you....
