Default autoaff3 virus

Hello everyone, im slowly cleaning my PC after recieving loads and loads of different viruses (all after that damn virus burster one).

However, the only one i appear to have now is something in my temporary internet files folder.

AVG antivirus keeps giving me populs saying that a 'virus was detected when opening file: C\Documents and settings\Guy\Local settings\Temporary internet files\Content.IE5\{Insert weird filename here, consisting of numbers and letters which appear to make NO sense atall!}.

I went to that directory, and found three files:

1)autoaff3/

2)Cookie:Guy@Rad.msn.com/

3)ff3.dll {Then loads of random numbers spanning the whole width of the page}

So i deleted these files. Lo and behold they came back within 1 minute!

I searched around on google and found a link to TREND MICRO. However they said that tog et rid of it that i should use the Windows boot disk. I currently do not have any access to the boot disc as its at my other house with my laptop!

How can i get rid of this annoying virus, it keeps popping up, meaning i cannot successfully finnish work (as it keeps stoping me) or play games ( as it keeps minimising them!)

Please help!

Guy

the poster above me is right. quarantining the virus will stop it from harming you. If I get a virus and deleting it doesn't work, I quarantine it and then it never bothers me again.

here is the link for a boot disk if needed ------> here

quarentining the virus will stop it from spreading across the hhd, and if you really know what your doing , you can kill it in the registry.

Ok, the site is asking me to pay, i will do that if neccecary, but all seems kinda complicated to me. I know my way with registry keys quite well, can you explain a little more down that route?

Ok, that sucks, i have no floppy discs, especially not 6 lol. anyone got any other ideas? ive been looking in the system32 folder, and found some folders called mljjj.dll and things like that.

I googled them and there was lots of talk about spyware. I deleted then and so far my system hasnt packed up lol!
Anyone ever heard of those files?
