Files on your operating system will become zapped. So now what do you do? The first thing to remember is not to panic. You might not even have a virus. Before you find a cure you need to find out if you have a virus and just what virus it is. If your computer is still functioning, and you can access the Internet, you'll need to look for known and current viruses. Do a manual scan on your system and look for...
