Did they tell you the name of the virus?

Can you get a screenshot of your desktop to show us what you are seeing?

i'm sorry for not responding right away- i have moved, so, i had to reconnect my computer in a different location with a different isp provider. now, i have new situation beside the one i had: i attached myself to my daughter's network, but i can't get my computer to print. she has win7 ie8, cannon mf4350 printer and i have win xp pro sp3, ie8 computer. it seems that when i hit print, the computer recognizes printer, but nothing comes out. the print icon just sits in taskbar.
i'm sorry for throwing things at you - i'm getting frustrated with the whole situation, especially that the place i took my computer to, is no help at all and i can't rely on them.
as for the virus i had, they told me it was the one i had deleted - mscdexnt.exe, but it managed to screw up disk drives, at least that what they told me (computer technician). also he removed avg10 free and cccleaner from computer and installed microsoft security essentials and said that i'm better off with it. am i?

Yep better program as far as I am concerned and less of a resource hog for sure.

As far as the printer does it have the XP drivers installed on your system and is the computer hooked to one system or is it setup as a network printer?

It has been 9 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.

I hope you did not lose a lot of files when they reloaded the OS again.
I also hope they installed all of the device drivers. Lets look at that to be sure.
Please Go to
1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter
4. Look for any entries with Yellow Exclamation ! marks or Red X's
In your next reply please include those results

i'm having this situation that i can't use my computer all the time, just once in awhile, so i can't respond fast. thus, please, be patient. hopefully, in a month or so i'll have my own place.
thanks again, for keeping this topic open
