click start run and type in regedit and press enter

Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\Supernova

and delete it if it exists.

This will show if u have the virus aswell, if it aint there then dont worry

Im clean. Ive got norton 2003 and find it works really well, updates automatically, and picks up on most virus's easily. Cuts them out of my email before I can get to them, as mate of mine often has them attached to an email.

Also got norton firwall. Although I got a few alerts, think its working ok.
