How do you delete files or viruses in the system volume on Window 2000? I see my virus scanning software checking the files but I cannot seem to find and delete them.
The best solution would be to boot to Safe Mode and run the virus scanning software from there, or boot to Safe Mode and delete any files reporting as infected by hand. A third alternative would be to use the Recovery Console to do the deletions if Safe Mode doesn't work.
