Hello!

Just wondering if anyone had any ideas/experience/advice about what I should do with this information.....I don't speak very fluent 'computer', so layman's terms would be appreciated. Even if it's really general advice, I'd really appreciate anything. At this point, I have no idea whether this is something I should be extremely worried about, or not.

Thanks for reading......

According to http://phishery.internetdefence.net/data/14781 phishery.internetdefence.net, it's a fake Webpage that attempts to steal your eBay user ID and password.

As long as you didn't enter any personal information in the infected Webpage, they'res nothing to worry about and the file is safe to delete.

In your Web browser, you can go to Tools --> Internet Options and click the "Delete Files" button, then OK the confirmation message. This method doesn't always work, however.

Alternatively, you can go to Start --> Run and copy/paste the following in the white box:
C:\Documents and Settings\Heidi\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\2P0FANWJ\

You can then find the file and manually delete it.

Or, my favourite method, is to use a handy program called CrapCleaner (it does what it says!):

For future scans, you can configure ClamWin to quarantine any viruses by right clicking on the Clam icon in your system tray. Then select Configure to bring up the Preferences screen. Under General preferences (the default Preferences screen), select Move To Quarantine folder under the Infected Files options. Right below that you will see the locatin of ClamWin's default quarantine directory (in Windows XP it's usually C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\.clamwin\quarantine . ClamWin will put any future viruses found in this location. You can then go to that directory in Windows Explorer, click on it to open it, and right click/Delete any virus files you find there.

If you surf the Web a lot, you should also be using a resident virus scanner because Clam scans on demand, and a resident scanner can prevent viruses from being placed on your computer. A couple of good free resident scanners you can download are AVG from Grisoft and AntiVir Personal Edition Classic from Avira. ClamWin should become resident next year.
