I accidentally clicked htt p://ringto nes.kla.na me/ and I got a nasty virus that got past my antivirus program (Avast) and now Windows XP won't stay on for more than a few seconds. I can't access the internet in safe mode and I don't have Hijack This on my computer. I'm on the verge of tears, what can I do? That computer is my livelihood!

Maybe if there is some way to find out the name of the file that comes from that link so I can go in and delete it? I don't know.

thanks a bunch

PS-I hope I posted this in the right forum, I'm panicking and not thinking very clearly.

Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.
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. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

thanks. I found I have the braviax.exe virus. I'm going to see if I can locate it in safe mode and delete it.
