I have no idea what is the problem why I am not able to delete this W32.Sobig.E@mm from my computer. My personal computer system is also working slow, may be because of the W32.Sobig.E@mm. I want to know how to get rid of this W32.Sobig.E@mm from my computer system.

Re: Need help to delete W32.Sobig.E@mm

W32.Sobig.E@mm worm spreads through the infected e-mail attachment. The subject and the body of the email are chosen by the W32.Sobig.E@mm worm randomly. One specific thing this infected mail contains is the sentence "Please see the attached zip file for details." So indirectly or directly this infected mail says the user to download the attachment file. Once this W32.Sobig.E@mm enters your computer system then it replicating itself and harms the user. I will suggest you to user Norton antivirus software for removing this W32.Sobig.E@mm worm from your computer system

Re: Need help to delete W32.Sobig.E@mm

If you are unable to delete this W32.Sobig.E@mm worm from your computer system then there is specific reason for that. W32.Sobig.E@mm worm changes the registry key so that it can launch every time you reboot your computer system. If you delete this W32.Sobig.E@mm worm from your computer system then it will come again when you reboot your computer system. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
"SSK Service" = %Windows%\winssk32.exe
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
"SSK Service" = %Windows%\winssk32.exe
W32.Sobig.E@mm modifies the above registry key if you have the knowledge of registry key then you can delete this W32.Sobig.E@mm from your computer system
