    if removal app doesn't find it, i'm serious, search for a copy of caribe.sis or reinstall that tainted app. then try the tool. you probably removed enough for the tool not to detect it, but not completely so that's why you're still seeing it.
    reinstall the virus then remove it. it sounds stupid but i'm confident it will work. keep us updated.

    if you can't reinstall the virus try deleting those files

    C:\system\apps\caribe\caribe.app
    C:\system\apps\caribe\flo.mdl
    C:\system\apps\caribe\caribe.rsc

    C:\SYSTEM\SYMBIANSECUREDATA\CARIBESECURITYMANAGER\ CARIBE.SIS
    C:\SYSTEM\SYMBIANSECUREDATA\CARIBESECURITYMANAGER\ CARIBE.APP
    C:\SYSTEM\SYMBIANSECUREDATA\CARIBESECURITYMANAGER\ CARIBE.RSC
    C:\SYSTEM\RECOGS\FLO.MDL

    some of the files might not be deleted from the first time, it will display " the program is already in use" restart the phone and try deleting them.

    excellent!

    what really worries me is the idea of getting this virus from a freeware program... it's easy enough to not accept it via bluetooth, but to download somehting and have it attached is crappy. and not just warez, but freeware that people write and distribute...

    crap crap crap i hate viruses.

    YAYYY !!!! I finally got rid of the virus from my Mem Card ....

    Now when i goto my Manager list, it does not show caribe as an installed app.
    But i still have that blank icon in my menu list ... does anyone know of what folder are the menu icons stored in .. that maybe i can get into by using Seleq FileExplorer and delete it ??? Also i think i had two versions of this viruses running.

    Btw thnx for the help everyone .. atleast now we all kinda know of how to get rid of this virus !!

    A Break Through !!!

    I just backed up my memory card to my computer using the BT, and guess what ??
    My 'Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition' detected all the files on my mem card that were still infected with the caribe virus, and it quarantined all of them.
    Now when i restore my mem card, after formatting it, it is going to be free of the virus.

    It is amazing to see Norton AntiVirus detecting and cleaning the Caribe Virus !! Woww ...

    Bluetooth virus

    I have a Sony Erricson K750i mobile phone.
    I do not turn on Bluetooth always.
    but I got a "accept download" (some .sis file) message while the bluetooth was switched off. this happened sometime back also.
    it seems the viruses can switch on the bluetooth even without your knowledge and permission. its really dangerous.

    2) The Best BT Security is, if your not using your BT, then TURN IT OFF

    3) If for instance, that you did not do all of the above, and for some reason, somebody you dont know is sending you something via BT, simply REJECT it.

    < If your BT is ON, make sure that your phone visibility is set to "HIDDEN", that way nobody can Bluejack you. >

    Not true. "Hidden" means your BT will not respond to any broadcast messages, like discovery probes. However, some clever dog figured out how to get around that using brute force..... you create a list of MAC addresses and start pinging them one by one. A BT device will respond to a message to its address even if it is "hidden".
