if your OS has System Restore function, you should turn it off before you scan/clean your system. the virus still around because everytime you reboot, it has a copy in the System Restore.

Possible, else, this virus might have stationed in ur bios. That's the worst, but I dunno if it IS possible.

try to look in your auto start up list and disable all the unknown start up applications.

What I think is that there is a program trying to copy or download the virus everytime you start up your windows 98.
you are using Maxonline cable or dial up(Singnet and etc) connections?

Have u shut down ur pc ever since? If scanning with the latest virus definitions STILL dun work, it may really be inside ur BIOS. I heard of viruses inhabiting ur CMOS/BIOS....

Some programs may not be shown when you press ctrl alt delete.
You have to use a special tools to check what program are in the process.

Try to use hijackthis software to do a scan to see if there are any unknown program running in the background without your knowledge.

I think there is a program trying to download the virus everytime you start up your system as your internet connection is always on.

If wanna test if it is really true, disable your MaxOnline connection first(plug out the cable from your PC to the modem) and do a scan and delete of virus.
Restart your system and try to scan again to see if there are anymore virus.

ciscoblue is right, not all programs can be seen at the task bar or by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del.

you can try this: go to Run and type "msconfig"', Enter
click Startup tab and disable those applications which are not supposed to be there. Caution!!! Do not disable those you are not sure, 'cos if they are used by the system, your pc may hang after you reboot.
