Hello! I'm new to this site, and although I know my way around computers fairly well, I need some help with this one. A friend of mine has found a virus on a Gateway 2000 running WinXP that shows W32/OLEADM.B as a virus the Bell-South antivirus program can't remove. I've read the posts about running HiJackThis, and need to get some remote help... (He is not computer literate... but I think I can talk him thru it)

I'll be back home later this evening... if there is someone available to help me out, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks in advance,
Linda

Just a big AMEN! to ultimateslackers suggestion. Following advice given to another user with a different system can cause even more problems, even if the malware is the same name. We have excellent helpers in the anti-malware section who have passed rigorous testing in malware analysis and removal. They have the skill to guide anyone through a successful process, even a complete beginner. Your friend will be in good hands there. Follow all the instructions in the "Start Here" link at the top of each G2G page and then post the log. You will receive a response from one of the Trusted Staff from that section with specific instructions.

Why go to another forum when we have such great services and people here.
Please proceed to the malware forum and read this before posting.
Thanx
