Help Please!

I have some how gotten a virus i can't seem to fix. I've tried everything and have come to my witts end... I am unable to open my computer, my documents, control panel, or my network places in XP. When I try, the screen freezes and then goes back with out opening the above places. I've tried Spybot, cwshredder, Adware, and my virus scanner to no avail.

Please Help!

:tazz: It sounds like you and I are in the same boat.
I've been here in limbo for five hours and i'm starting to get some help just now.

Just be very patient with them,and they will get to you.
But firtst you have to get a log from your computer.
Go up to the top of your page where it say's "start here"
and follow the steps.
It will save you and them a little bit of time. ;)

Can't hurt to run 1 more virus scanner; AVG Personal. The free one (I think its a free trial). You might need to get the registry keys and look them up (google them or look them up in a spyware directory like www.spywareguide.com). You can also do a free whole system scan at www.pcpitstop.com (Thats only if it isn't a virus but its still a good idea even if it is). Hope you get this thing off your PC!

Hi Mark,

Have you tried running AdAware, Spybot, etc. while in "safe mode"? If not, try it. When starting up, press the F8 key to boot into "safe mode." Once in "safe mode" run AdAware, Spybot and your virus scanner. Then reboot.

Sounds like you might have a problem that Spysweeper could fix. I like AdAware and Spybot, but Spysweeper is probably the best and most effective (finds important crud the other softwares will miss). It's saved my computer many times.

It's too bad your problem involves the screen freezing, as I would recommend downloading the trial of Spysweeper and running the software.

Keep us posted.

Kind Regards,

JDM
