"Beast.exe" Warning! dangerous virus
Beware of this deadly virus, this corrupts every that you open. How does it corrupt? basically this virus locks your file and telling you that it your file is missing even if it's not.
This is my problem:
-I have a file (Microsoft word file ".doc") which is a very very important file to the business and is now infected by this virus called "Beast.exe".
I NEED TO RECOVER THIS IMPORTANT FILE!
-I have no idea how to solve this kind of problem.
-My anti-virus seems to be useless cause it says the virus cannot be deleted cause it cannot be found by the anti-virus. It's like a moving virus it hits and run.
-I have transfer some of the uninfected files to the other hard disk just to be safe.
If you guys have any idea how to recover this infected file please post it. I am desperate of gaining that file back.

Check with your anti-virus manufacturer for an update?
Report the virus to your anti-virus manufacturer?
There may be an update or removal tool available from them.

One thing you could do is get an ultimateboot cd for windows. burn it to disk then boot from cd. Run the antivirus and spyware applications. This should help you some it will allow you to scan the machine without the virus activating.
have you tried copying the file to a disk and opening on another machine? this may work unfortunatley for you and your bussiness is that your getting a hard lesson in learning to backup your files. You should try to when you get it sorted out backup to at least an external harddrive an online source and a copy of your most important documents should be kept in a 2nd location from the bussiness just incase of fire.
