On saturday i had a virus called Antispyware2008, i managed to delete it but when i rebooted my computer my services were disabled and it showed up blank, which caused tons of problems. So i just popped in my old Windows XP SP1a cd. and then when i reinstalled service pack 3 but the problems came back. this also happened when i installed service pack 2. I'm guessing that the virus installed infected files that my anti spyware programs couldn't find. And probably when installing service pack 2 or 3 these files refused to be overwritten and would just screw up my system if i were to install service pack 2 or 3. So i'm wondering if there's a way that i can find all service pack 2 and 3 files in my system and delete it??? or anything that could help??

Hello xxcyz1

You should never upgrade service packs or windows installations with infections... may cause even more problems...

I suggest you head over to the malware forums and get checked out by the malware specialist / removealist

I suggest you start here :http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/You-Must-Read-Before-Posting-Hijackthis-Log-t2852.html

save all relavent logs

than head over here : http://www.geekstogo...o-Here-f37.html

create a new topic and post all relavent logs

Good luck with the problem

once you get the all clear from the malware staff we can assist you from there


Thank you for your co-operation
