I got that Worm.Win32.NetSky virus on my Windows Vista.

I know that there's some threads around about how to remove it... but the problem is, I can't even log into my computer to remove it!

Everytime I login, That Virus message will come up. And when I close it, I'll just get a blank desktop, with no taskbar, no icons... nothing. When I press ctrl+alt+del, there's not even that "start taskbar" button - and so I can't get windows explorer running!

Please help!!!!!

from the link on the lower half of this page:
You will need to make it a bootable disk which usually means doing a Disk Copy from the iso file. Then you may need to go into the BIOS Setup to change the boot order so that it looks at the cd/dvd first.

The page explains how to use it to fix a no logon condition. In your case netsky usually messes winlogon too but if userinit looks normal then check the value of shell which should be explorer.exe.

From a recent post we can see these Netsky infection points in an OTL log:

O4 - HKLM..\Run: [notepad] C:\WINDOWS\System32\notepad.DLL (Microsoft)
O4 - HKLM..\Run: [tqammy] C:\WINDOWS\System32\msaouahn.DLL (USA)

(possible infected file on USB drive or external drive)

NetSvcs: BtwSrv - C:\WINDOWS\system32\BtwSrv.dll (FTD2XX Software Technology)
NetSvcs: Iprip - C:\WINDOWS\system32\Ipripv32.dll ()

These last two will mess up your internet. See:



If in doubt compare to a working system.
