About W32.Klez.gen@mm detections
W32.Klez.gen@mm is a generic detection that detects variants of W32.Klez. Computers infected with W32.Klez.gen@mm have most likely been exposed to either W32.Klez.E@mm or W32.Klez.H@mm. If your computer is detected as infected with W32.Klez.gen@mm, download and run the tool. In most cases, the tool will be able to remove the infection.

What the tool does
The W32.Klez Removal Tool:
Terminates all the processes associated with W32.Klez@mm or W32.Elkern.
Deletes the services of W32.Klez@mm.
Removes the registry entries created by W32.Klez@mm.
Detects all types of W32.Klez@mm and W32.ElKern infections and repairs the repairable files.
Innoculates the W32.Elkern.4926 repaired files to prevent re-infection.

A file infected with W32.Klez.E@mm or W32.Klez.H@mm includes a link to the encrypted host file. If the encrypted file does not exist at that link, the tool deletes the infected file, because it is not repairable, and thus, the encrypted file is not restored.
The W32.ElKern repair removes the viral code from the infected file. It does not ensure that a file repaired from a W32.ElKern attack will run, as this virus often corrupts files.
