Help!! I have been infected by a virus called VBS/IEstart.gen.f It only appears when I restart or start up. If I run Mcafee virus scan it never shows up. When prompted at start-up to delete or quarrentine, I am not able to do so. It will only allow me to exclude it. Anyone know how to fix this? I am getting corrupted web pages and am currently unable to print anything. Help!!

Welcome to GTG dadintrouble :D

Try scanning with AVG Free Edition after you update it:

If it still can't allow you to delete it, it's probably in the System Restore folder. To be sure, let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results. <_<
