    Microsoft Forefront has been giving me a warning about potentially harmful software on my laptop for the last two days. Name of the offending software is given as Worm:VBS/Slows.A and the alert level is given as 'Severe'. Got the warning yesterday and it goves an option to smart clean to remove it, I also scanned with Avast and nothing showed up. Got another warning for this today saying that the status of the programme is suspended. Anyone know what this is, where I might have picked it up and how I can get rid of it for good. Also is it as serious as Forefront suggests, computer isn't running any slower than usual. Thanks in advance !

    Thanks for the replies guys. Hasn't popped up since yesterday now so hopefully its gone. Otherwise I'm hoping the steps provided above will get rid of it, virus scans don't show up anything
