Question Know this one?

AVG has just put a virus in the vault, file name; css[1]wmf, path C/docs & settings. AVG vault shows it as "unknown virus Exploit WMF" [MS DOS]

It's safe now, but what is it's level of potency?

Try healing, if not delete it. It may be Virus residents

AVG say "infected,unable to heal" they always say that, it is contained in their vault, & in the past the guys here have said it's safe there, & also safe to delete from there, it won't infect my system by doing this. [what's "virus residents"?]

I was just wondering how powerful this particular one was.

Yes, that's the one, but only one entry, not three like you had, mine were in the virus vault, like yours, I searched for "cff[1].wmf", the name given on a line like yours but found nothing because it was in the vault, strange that you could.

I searched Google for Exploit-WMF and found this:
http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_137760.htm

I also found some information here, but the patch provided at the first link (from Microsoft) should be sufficient:
http://virusbusters.itcs.umich.edu/viruslist/wmf.html

It seems to be a problem specifically related to Windows.. and therefore has been exploited. Luckily, it seems that Microsoft has released a patch or prevention / removal information.

Good luck removing this little bug..
I hope it turns out okay for you.
