Hi,

My computer was recently got infected by some virus that changed some of my windows settings including:
1. removing Local disk icons from My Computer, or any directory trees
2. removing the log-off/switch user item from the start menu
3. adding "VIRUS ALERT!" at the end of my time format
4. adding "VIRUS ALERT!" to the General tab in the My Computer Properties

Has anyone come across these? It would be much appreciated if some of you could offer some advice!

Thanks!

Hello :)

I assume your still infected:

Please follow all of the steps in this section of the Malware Forum. 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 the Malware 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. Should you post in that forum please do not respond to your own topic. Our Malware Staff look for topics to help out in that have no responses. The Malware Forum is very busy with many more requests for help than we have volunteer helpers, so please be patient. If you have not had a response to a topic after 3 days then please go to the Waiting Room and read the pinned topic for instructions.
