    Yeah I tried that, it was able to delete some of it, but it wasn't able to do anything about the active processes which are the biggest problem...

    Install Spybot.

    Disable restore points.

    Boot to safe mode to kill active processes. (boot while holding F8)

    Run Spybot.

    Repeat with your anti-virus of choice.

    Be cured.

    Before I got my laptop, I had some major problems on my desktop (all cured now). There's a former P/O in Philly who has always helped me with any virus problems. I think he works for the DA's office now doing computer forensics, but he's got his own website and is always willing to help.

    I know he's always had me download Hijack This and send him the log, and he'd have me run a bunch of other scans. Most of the computer protection I have on my computer comes from his recommendations and I haven't had any problems since.

    If you're still having problems and I'm allowed to post his website (I don't want to break any TOS), I know he or his staff at the website would be more than happy to help. He's really great at this stuff and he's a really nice guy.

    Please let me know how you made out with the virus.

    Did I somehow wander into the O/R "Greek and Latin Discussion Forum"? Holy shit you people are way over my head. How did yall learn all this stuff? Seriously...is there some kind of a class that everyone but me has taken? I just know 2 things about computers: 1) Al Gore invented the interweb and 2) it's great for looking for porn.

    I geeked out by starting with a Commodore 64 circa 1985, and the rest has been history.

    I learned a lot over the years - most on my own, and the rest by the P/O who helped with the problem I had on my PC. Once you research, it becomes pretty simple.



    it's great for looking for porn.
    Oh, my!

    Sheesh, I remember those things - I used to work in one of Commodore's old buildings that Dallas Semiconductor snatched after Commodore went belly up

    Yeah, sometimes booting it in safe mode unlocks the DLL and EXE files so the virus scanner can delete them, but usually when I get something like that, it's a good excuse to buy a bigger hard drive and re-install all my programs on it.

    Then I might install the old hard drive as a secondary drive that doesn't run anything, so the virus scanner has unlimited access to everything on the drive. After that I usually get the files I want off, delete the partition, and reformat the damn thing from scratch so I know the virus is history.

    One note of caution about replacing the drive though... Often companies these days don't give you CD's of everything needed to be re-installed, especially Windows, Office & special drivers. Make sure you have all those if you have to take the radical approach.

    If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
    And the double clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
    And your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash.
    Then your situation's hopeless and your system's gonna crash!

    If the label on the cable on the table at your house
    Says the network is connected to the button on the mouse,
    But your packets want to tunnel on another protocol,
    That's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,
    And your screen is all distorted by the side affects of Gauss,
    So your icons in the windows are so wavy as a souse,
    Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
    'Cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!
