This is a VB script worm means this VBS.Spam.Brief worm is written in visual basic script. It is clear from the above reply that this worm spread through infected emails. The body contents and the subject of the infected message is randomly selected by the virus. Normally this worm enters your computer system if you download the infected attachments.

Re: How to delete VBS.Spam.Brief virus?

For removing this VBS.Spam.Brief from your computer system I will suggest you to use kasperky antivirus software. I am suggesting you to use this antivirus software because I was also suffering with the same problem of worm and now my computer system is free from any kind of virus or worm. This antivirus software will not only remove this worm but will also remove other malicious codes which can harm your computer system.
