I recently acquired the nasty little collected.5.L trojan - and am in the process of sorting this out - with HijackThis and AVG.
I can't run programs such as HijackThis or Task Manager in 'normal' XP - as the Windows close straight away after I've opened them! I presume this is related to the infection.
So - I've gone in via Safe Mode to sort this out - and can execute all necessary programs fine! However, I have 4 user accounts on the PC - but when I start in safe mode, one of the users accounts (on the opening XP screen) is replaced by 'Administrator'.
Therefore, I can't access just one of my accounts via Safe Mode!!
For illustration purposes, my login menu is:
(normal XP mode)
(in Safe Mode)
Any ideas why?
Many thanks in advance!
