Hello,

I am trying to run the Trojan.Brisv.A!inf Removal Tool, as an administator, but it comes up with the folowing message:

You do not have Administaror rights to run the tool. Please contact your Network Administrator for more information.

I have no idea what to do, seeing as I am aready an admin on the laptop.

Can anyone help? Thanks x

The virus/trojan could be preventing you from running the removal program. Did you try it in "safe mode"

Restart the computer - then hit F8 when the Windows logo screen comes up. It will then display a lot of text and slowly boot into a sub-set of Windows. You might be able to then run anti-virus programs. Good Luck

Running it in safe mode worked, and i was able to run the Trojan.Brisv.A!inf Removal Tool. Thank you ever so much. x

umm why is it that even after running the tool, and removing the virus, it stil comes up with the message saying that it needs to be removed manually, when i re-scan using the antivurus software? and when i do re-remove it, after a couple of hours, cause thats how long the tool takes, it comes up with a message saying that the virus isnt there to begin with? so why do i keep getting a message saying that it is? am confused x

Are you on Vista? If so try right-clicking the removal tool's icon and select 'run as administartor'.

i did as you suggested xpc man and started in safe mode, and that seemed to work, when i used the tool, it came back saying their was no trojan, and have re ran norton and its doing the same?, as i have deleted the mulitmedia file that was infected, and i deleted limewire ages ago, should that have sorted it? or do you think it may still be on my system?
