View Full Version : Ikernel Nimda Virus help!!

11-10-2001, 09:31 PM

can anybody help?? recently i installed The Sims expansion pack and i got an Nimda virus detection from my NAV on the Ikernel file from Installshield. I don't think its from the cd but maybe that virus got spread through my network or what.

Anyway, now that my installshield ikernel is corrupted, how do i reinstall instatllshield again?? Because i think its only installed when i install my games or software. But now whenever i install some program that uses installshield, it hangs there and prompt me an error msg saying server cant extract some files or something.

How do i reinstall installshield again?? Thanks!

Just to let you know, there is a KB article published ( Q105740 ) describing the issue that the new Norton AV definitions find a virus in ikernel.exe. This issue appears to be a false virus error. Please check the article for more details at kb.InstallShield.com.
