Help!

I accidently clicked one of those stupid AIM links that gives you a virus. I couldn't delete the virus. So I restarted my computer and now I can't even log into my computer.

It brings me to the Windows XP welcome screen, I try to log in, but it automatically logs off.

I've tried putting my hard drive into another computer and scan for a virus, but that didn't work. I've also tried putting a bootable antivirus into my computer, but that didn't detect any viruses.

Help!

Hi Hamburgers!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

Sue AIM for giving those links and get rich! I'm not joking! They are liable for their ads.

It's their responsibility to maintain clean use of their programs and services and with a virus under those links, it's NOT clean or safe.

Sue their asses!
If you do and you win the lawsuit, be respectfull and give me a small donation :whistling:.

Umm..... I would do that... but there is one problem...

My computer won't log in!! It turns on and goes to the welcome screen. I click Log In... and then it automatically logs out.

So I can't access any of my files or programs on my computer. I am using a different computer right now.

Then post a new topic in the malware forum stating your problem and they will try to help you through it.
