it. It severly messed with my pc. It deactivated my xp, would not let me do
an online antivirus scan in safe mode, windows xp would not load, it took 9
hours to scan 120 gb hd. I finally got rid of it. now, I have some issues.
HL-DT-ST GWA 4040b dvd-rw drive not working. will not play cds or dvds.
every software I have is giving me an error or is completely freezing my
computer. dvd shrink gives me an "I/O error" Windows media player says the
"disc is diry or damaged, turn on error correction" However, I put the disc
in the second dvd rom drive and it plays perfectly in windows media player.
I checked device manager, device manager had it incorrectly listed as
"cd-rom" and not "dvd-rw" The virus must have did that. I uninstalled
"cd-rom", rebooted, now device manager correctly lists as 'dvd-rw" drive.
says it is enabled and working properly. I have tested this dvd rw drive and
put a windows xp oem disc in to boot from. Windows xp loads all the way
until you install. So the dvd-rw drive must work? This must be a windows xp
issue? the dvd-rw drive worked a week before I got the virus. the dvd-rw
drive is seen in "my computer" I also loaded the default bios with no luck.
other things this virus messed up..My ethernet card. I had to reset the
winsock in command prompt to get back online. I can't right click the
desktop without freezing the entire pc (I read the context menu in the
registry is corrupt)
any help will be greatly appreciated
