This message was posted to the old
"wwwboard"-based forum; for the current forum,
I keep these old messages here mostly because people keep finding them in Web searches, and I hate broken links. Most of those searches are about the FunLove virus, or the "Elf Bowl" game. These old postings should not be considered authoritative on those subjects!
For information on FunLove, I suggest anti-virus Web sites, like this and this. If you're wondering if the Elf Bowl game is a virus, try here or here. For Elf Bowl and related games, try a Google search, or perhaps some possibly related website like this or this.

to get rid of the funlove virus simply download the funfix tool (you can get this from symantec security response ),boot up your computer using a clean write protected dos boot disc ,at the a prompt type in fixfun c: > c:fixfun.txt let the tool run .....this can take a while ,then type exit so you return to windows and look up the flcss.exe again ,it should now be a folder .......delete it and run your antivirus on your system again...this may affect internet explorer content setting so you may have to reinstall internet explorer ......do it this way and you will not lose any files or programs .....good luck
