I had the VBS/Ritart.worm virus, but thankfully the Malware guys (Rorschach112) helped me get rid of most if not all of it Please read http://vil.mcafeesec...nt/v_143930.htm to see some specific stuff on what registry the virus edited
Basically, my problems are:
I can't open Regedit, CMD, MSConfig, a few other important EXE programs (above link lists more if you read the edited registry).....but espeically can't run and "Setup.exe" or "Install.exe" (which is a real pain) programs.
The Virus had originally created tons (about 13,000) .VBS files that were disguised as MSWORD Docs. Through Virusscans, I got most of those out. In my Start Menu, "Run" and "Search" were missing, and "Folder Options" in the CP was missing. By using a registry cleaner, I was able to restore the Run and Folder Options icons.
My boot.ini file is blank, and during the reboot process A black screen appears that reads "Invalid boot.ini file, Booting from c:/ or something along those lines.
When I log on, I get two Notepad popups that reads [.ShellClassInfo]
Now, MSWORD seems to be gone from my computer (but I think this has something to do with a registry cleaner I had run "RRT.exe"
Sorry for the long list of problems. I've run tons of different malware tests, but I'll run anything you guys would need in order to help me. I'm no tech or anything, but I just imagine that I'd have fix those registrys and somehow fix my boot.ini.
