I have this virus on my pc and I ran Norton(which is the free version that came with the pc) and it detected W32.IRCbot as well as tracking cookie and adware.hotbar

Also, when my pc is started, it loads up in widows explorer and if I close it, I have a blank desktop. I have tried Dell factory restore and it tells me that Tools\dp.sc was denied. Can anyone help me with this situation.


Thanks

Hi and welcome to the forums here at G2G. Apologies for the delay in getting to your post but as you can probably see the forums are swamped with users looking for help. I have merged both of your topics. Please only reply back to this topic with your responses.

Please follow the instructions at the following link. If your problem persists then post a HijackThis log back to this link. Do not start a new topic. Instructions for running HJT is at the end of the link:
