EDIT%

ok here are the results

i have "W32.FunLove.4099 " on my pc is infecting a key*en i used and also cuteftp installer

then in the files i backed up from my parents pc fruking 45 files were infected with

W32.FunLove.4099
W32.Funlove.int
W95.Spaces.1445

now i know why there pc got all [email protected][email protected] up damn... what should i do now?

can i remove the virus on my pc... and iv sence reinstalling and formating my parents pc have returned those infected files onto my parents pc does that mean its reinfected?

also what about cuteftp it said the installer was infected but none of the program files were? im confused

ps they dont have removal tools for w95.spaces or funlove.int

what do i do?
