    Unhappy Unwise_.exe Worm not removed by Zone AV

    Has anyone dealt with infected files with names like "Unwise_.exe"
    or the worm Net-Worm.Win32.Kolabc.gza ?

    Zone Labs users:

    Can you help with removal of a virus [Net-Worm.Win32.Kolabc.gza] that continues to infect my PC even though Zone Labs Security Suite caught and quarantined the virus ? It was not able to remove it, but did quarantine it, on July 22, 23, and 28, 2009. From time to time the Unwise_.exe executable file continues to reappear, and tries to execute -- Zone Labs seems to catch these attempts, and asks (in a dialog box) whether to allow it or deny it to execute.

    I am trying to remove the font files in which this worm still exists --- with less than total success. The worm also lies in one Windows "restore" file.

    What would be my best approach, and next steps?

    Have you tried to boot your system up in Safe Mode with Networking and run ZA and re-scan your system to see if ZA can then remove it?

    please also see here if safe mode will not be enough.
