Hi Mariela, welcome to Geeks to Go. We can help! <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

My computer will boot up, and then shut down 3 or 4 times on its own, and also, keeps coming up with several trojan horse messages, prompting me to use AVG, so I do, and it doesnt help at all.. Please help or the computer is going out the window!!
Just kidding.. Thanks!

Hi marcarenzio. Welcome to GTG. Don't throw the computer out the window yet. We can salvage it for you. <_<

Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here:
http://www.moosoft.com/


Download Ad-aware from: http://www.geekstogo...n=download&id=5

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the main window, look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

Next, we need to configure Ad-aware for a full scan.

-> Click on the Gear icon (second from the left) to access the preferences/settings window

1. In the General window make sure the following are selected:
  • Automatically save log-file
  • Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
  • Safe Mode (always request confirmation)
2. Click on the Scanning button on the left and select :
  • Scan Within Archives
  • Scan Active Processes
  • Scan Registry
  • Deep Scan Registry
  • Scan my IE favorites for banned URL’s
  • Scan my Hosts file
  • Under Click here to select drives + folders, choose:
  • All of your hard drives
-> Click on the Advanced button on the left and select:
  • Include additional process information
  • Include additional file information
  • Include environment information
  • Include additional object details
-> Click the Tweak button and select:
  • Under the Scanning Engine:
    • Unload recognized processes during scanning
    • Include basic Ad-aware settings in logfile
    • Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile
  • Under the Cleaning Engine:
    • Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
-> Click on Proceed to save the settings.

-> Click Start and on the next screen choose Activate in-depth Scan at the bottom of the page and then choose:
  • Use Custom Scanning Options
-> Click Next and Ad-aware will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected.

-> Save the log file when it asks and then click Finish

-> When finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose Select All from the drop down menu and click Next).


Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

-> Reboot your computer.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic.

I think it might be too late.. Now the computer turned off, so I am writing from work, and it gets to the beginning of booting up, and then freezes at the ms dos screen with the blinking cursor at the bottom, and I cant do anything to get into windows or anything else...
I think I killed it..

Try restarting the computer using "last known good configuration":
1. Start Windows, or if it is running, shut Windows down, and then turn off the computer.
2. Restart the computer. The computer begins processing a set of instructions known as the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS). What is displayed depends on the BIOS manufacturer. Some computers display a progress bar that refers to the word BIOS, while others may not display any indication that this process is happening.
3. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Continue to do so until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
4. Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, scroll to and select the Last Known Good Configuration menu item, and then press Enter.

It says it cant because system32\drivers\ntfs.sys is missing or corrupt.
Then if i try to get it off of a disk, it says that I need an administrators password..
I think I need to just reinstall XP and lose all my data...
Any other ways?? I dont think I want to pay some dude a couple hundred dollars to burn my info onto disk...
Thanks.

If you're going to reinstall windows as a last resort, then at least do a repair installation. Boot with the windows xp installation in the drive and at the first blue setup screen choose to install windows xp. Accept the license agreement and the next blue screen you can press "R" and this will execute a "repair" installation of xp. That means that windows will reinstall just like normal, but save all your data. Nothing will be lost except for all windows updates. As soon as installation is complete I would make sure I was physically disconnected from the internet and then turn on the Internet Connection Firewall (if you don't already have one installed). GO DIRECTLY TO WINDOWS UPDATES Download and install all updates and you should be back to normal. Or better yet, if you have service pack 1 or 2 on disk install from that and then go to the windows update site. You can then turn off the firewall or leave it on for your protection.
