W97M/Hope is a simple Word class infector.
Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
Detailed instructions for F-Secure security products are available in the documentation found in the Downloads section of our Home - Global site.
You may also refer to the Knowledge Base on the F-Secure Community site for further assistance.
When an infected document is opened, W97M/Hope.A disables the macro virus protection. It also removes both "Tools/Macros" and "Tools/Options..." menus.
Then the virus infects the global template and all documents opened or closed thereafter.
