So my other computer, the bigger, faster, and more secure one, is now enjoying an incredible trojan horse. I ran the McAfee virus protection and it can do nothing. luckily i have an old backup to be able to post this message.
these are the symptoms:
all wireless internet connectivity does not function ( i did not even try plugging in the cable, i figured i better stay away)
the turn off computer button in the start menu is gone.
the run command prompt is gone
I am not allowed to access task manager or registry edit.
my startup files have been reduced to (5) five.
and when it does start up i get this error "windows\servicepackfiles\winlogon.exe" is missing or corrupt.
I copied all my important, documents to an external harddrive and powered it off. i am mad.
the McAfee found the virus as windows\system32\mswsock.dll and referred to it as generic proxy.a
I went to their site and they have no info on such things.
I am going to try and run "Trojan Remover" program on the computer tomorrow cause i saw it here on this site, but i would love any recommendations or feedback on my current situation. Thanks again!
