I had recently been using a file sharing program LimeWire Pro. There was a particular program that I tried to download. Unfortunately, upon trying to run the program I discovered several viruses in the program. I've run virus scans repeatedly, and the virues are being identified. I've got WindowsLive OneCare w/Windows Defender, Ad-Aware SE, Registry Mechanic, and Spyware Doctor from PCTools. These programs are finding the viruses and placing them in quarantine files. Once quarantined, is it safe to delete them from my computer? Should I do this through the virus scan program or manually (by finding the location of the file and 'right-click' deleting it)?
I am also observing that when I run virus scans and the files are listed as they are scanned, I keep seeing a C:/Win32Trojan downloader file there. I believe this is the virus, isn't it? My scans seem to be only identifying the components to this and quarantining them, but not erasing the acutal virus itself.

Also, I've uninstalled Limewire in order to clean the viruses. At one point it looked like they were gone so I tried to reinstall Limewire. After this, it's obvious that the virus is still there (Limewire will start itself automatically, and viruses will popup everywhere!). What should I do? The Limewire support team says I have been infected with Alcra virus.

Follow these instructions carefully

Download ALL 10 programs and update if needed.

Ad Aware SE Personal Free

Ad-aware Messenger Service Plugin

Ad-Aware VX2 Cleaner Plug-In 2.0

Spybot Search and Destroy Free

Windows Defender 2 Beta

HijackThis

Ewido

CCleaner

Cleanup!

Follow these steps

Delete the prefetch folder C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch, this folder will come back on next reboot.

Delete all cookies and temporary internet files in the control panel, Internet Options.

Go to Start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, disable everything except your antivirus, Firewall, click apply, don¡¦t reboot yet.

Download Msconfig Cleanup below

Msconfig Cleanup

Run Msconfig Cleanup after you unchecked the items you were told to uncheck and recheck, click "Select All", then click "Clean up Selected", then click "Quit". Make sure your antivirus and firewall are not checked.

Now run each Spyware program 1 by 1. Running all 3 at the same time will slow most systems down.

When each program has finished scanning, remove everything.

Now go to the recycle bin and delete everything that is in it.

Then run CCleaner „² make sure you run the Cleaner section of Windows and Applications and then the Registry Cleaner. Make a backup if you wish while running the Registry Cleaner when it asks you.

When finished with the scans, reboot, and go into Safe Mode and run these scans again, remove everything they find, and then reboot back into Windows in normal mode.

Then run HiJackthis!

Save the log, copy and paste the log on www.techist.com
Do not attach the log, copy and paste always. This will make things go much faster.

not sure if anyone has mentioned but if you get viruses comming back as if out of nowhere the you may need to clear your system restore.
Also scan for rootkits with something like blacklight &| rootkitreveler.

You have to watch out for stuff like that on the P2P networks. Sometimes companies will put those files out there on purpose to discourage people from sharing it. I tried to download a program once and ever search result LW gave me was of the same file. Best thing to do is after you download something, right click on the file and scan it for viruses.
