Re: Remove the W32 /Pinkslipbot

I advise you that you have to try to start your computer into the Safe Mode. To boot your computer in Safe Mode, continuously click the function F8 key immediately just after clicking the restart button of your computer. After starting into the Safe Mode try to remove or delete the files that can be infected by the W32 /Pinkslipbot virus. I guess this information can works for you to delete the W32 /Pinkslipbot virus from you system.
