    I use Windows XP professional SP 1. Recently two viruses "Msmedia.exe" and "syshost.exe" are repeatedly detected by my McAfee antivirus software whenever I use the internet. MsMedia.exe is reported as a New Malware/Trojan and syshost.exe as virus. The former could not be cleaned and is moved to another folder the latter could be deleted. This gets really annoying. Is there any way to remove these viruses.

    U can always delete these files from a Linux partition!!
    Install Mandriva Linux 2006 , boot into Linux , and
    start deleting all the compressed files. I had Msmedia
    in my system and I removed it this way. Remember
    if you delete a Windows System file, your OS won't
    boot!! You may need to reinstall Windows XP again
    after doing the cleanup from Linux

    Good luck

    :D :D
