This computer as of two days ago, ran faster than any comp i've had before.
Then i got something calling itself Spy.Zbot.YETH
It created a firewall error registry? Now when i load my admin login. This loads first, then it loads the virus, and then i am unable to do anything else. The start buttons/desktop icons/taskbar, ALL of them go at such a slow pace, you arent even able to open taskmgr. or anything at all. I cant open Ie of course i hope you understand. The guest login contains the same error? Or virus, but it opens after the rest of my things load. So unless i will be completely reformatting, which i do not know how to do. I would like to change my administrator to the other login.
Hopefully then, i can run the setups for other virus scans? because i cant access them on this login, and definately cant run on the other.
Thanks,
Bill Harris

Your best bet is a post in the Malware forum first to clean the system up before you do anything else.
