This question was answered on February 9, 2000. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

The reason that you are re-infecting yourself is that you are not "cleaning" your system Just deleting the "mine.exe" file does not get rid of the virus, it simply is getting rid of one of the symptoms Use an up-to-date anti-virus program such as Viruscan from McAfee or Norton's Anti-virus As was posted, dozens of files are infected as well as your registry Until you get this areas fixed, your system will re-infect itself automatically.
