[COLOR=purple]I recently tried to remove the Smitfraud.c virus from a friend's computer and went through all of the instructions on your forum, however nothing would paste from the clipboard into HiJack This. I had everything highlighted so I know that was not it. Anyway, I ended up not performing the action and the virus was still there among many others. I ran AVG virus scanner and it said it "healed" the files it found. I was finally able to connect to the internet after that and run Windows 2000 updates (which had not been done in a long time, obviously). Now, after I shut down the computer, it won't finish the boot sequence and go into Windows. I'm at a loss at where to go next. This is an IBM NetVista 8303 computer. I have no discs with this computer. I had to get updates on the Bios from IBMs website and also downloaded the Program Recovery Discs, which also did not work. I'm at a loss as to what I should do next. Someone please help!!!...I cleaned this computer of 3500 affected files and 589 trojans already. By the way, everything worked fine after the Bios update and I had no trouble until I ran the Windows updates.

Welcome freebird53 to Geeks to Go!


Let's see what we can do. It probably has nothing to do with the updates you did, I think it's part of an infection we see lately.

You have no startup disk or Windows 2000 CD (maybe you can borrow it just to get into the system).

Let me tell you what I have done so far. I went to IBM's website and downloaded the critical Bios update and installed that before I did anything else. It was working fine. Then I downloaded the Enhanced diagnostics CD and the Program Recovery CD for this computer. It did a backup on the base partition. When I tried to log back into the Windows program, it asked me for an Administrator password and I put that in, however after doing my windows updates, it told me that was not the correct password. I know that it is and I typed it several times being very careful to put it in exactly the way it's supposed to be. After getting frustrated, I went to bed and when I came back in that morning and turned on the computer, it wouldnt even boot up. I can't get to a c: prompt, I cant get into the Bios, it just goes through and gives me keyboard errors now, etc. and its saying the Bios is shadowed....then the screen goes blank...just a dark screen. I have a bootable Bios disc but the computer won't read it I guess. I am at a complete loss now as to what to do. Any suggestions????

I do have a windows XP cd I can use. I dont necessarily have to use the 2000 because I would like to reformat the hard drive altogether, however I can't get a c: prompt to even do that

I let your topic be moved to 'Windows XP, 2000, 2003, NT'.

The helpers here are better at this sort of problems than I am.

I leave you in their capable hands.

Good luck.

Thanks for your post. Should I uninstall the AVG virus scanner before I do all of this? Also, before when I used Killbox, it would only let me put one line in at a time. Is this normal?...or should I click on the Red x after each line I c&p....
