-=PCTechTalk=- Re: WORM_URICK.A

Question: I recently got the W32.Frethem.K@mm worm 
virus and used an upgrade to bring my machine back to
life. I am using XP Professional. I noticed that my
photo files were changed from my normal jpg format to
a jpg format with VBScriptScriptfile and changed the
appearance to that of a green "S" How to I change
those files back. I was going to totally re-install XP
not as an upgrade but rather as a completely new
operating system?
