    excellent guide…..I just removed this virus, but the viral file name was “VMA.EXE” and the companion system file was “7VJ5”. After removing, I performed a search for these file names and found additional copies of the “7VJ5” file in several other locations, which I promptly deleted.

    Or failing that any of their close relatives ?
