My anti virus software has been going crazy for the last few weeks about this virus. Ive tried to solve it myself but has so far proved unsuccessful. It keeps saying virus detected - eicar test file. After a bit of research I found that this is a test virus to see if the anti virus software would pick it up which it obviously did, but now it wont stop picking it up! I didn't purposely download it and i'm not that bothered about how it got there i just want it gone! its not as simple as just deleting a file though as it gives its location as hxxp://

I have no idea how to delete or block urls, please help
