    Default Email-Worm Win32 Brontok.a

    Hi there,I seem to have the Email-Worm Win32 Brontok.a.
    While my Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite found some of the replications of this virus in my computer and quarantined them, there is one location where
    this Email Worm Virus
    cannot be quarantined and Zone Alarm informs me that it can delete it only when I reboot. This is not the case.
    Whenever I reboot, the same thing happens again. I believe, based on my readings, that this virus is now in my registry, which is why Zone Alarm cannot delete or quarantine it. It also means that whenever I reboot, the virus begins again.
    I'm very wary of editing my registry but I don't want to "re-do" my computer again. Does anyone know how to to edit a registry and extract/delete this virus from it?
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Many thanks.



    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
