I have scanned my computer with Norton Antivirus Pro Version 2003 -licensed and updated. The win.ini file seems to be distributed in several drives of my 2-hard disk computer and the contaminant virus is win.ini(w32.Opaserv). In only one case is it in the windoesd/system folder. Norton is unable to quaritine or repair the virus - and the Norton AV program auggests its deletion. Can I do so and will Win XP or win98 ( I have them on separate harddrives on the same computer) automatically recreate the win.ini file? Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808 and I will be helping you today.

We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool [ HiJackThis ], read the short tutorial [ HERE ]

Then post the results of the scan here.

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

In the event you cannot download it then you have to use another computer then transfer it to your PC.  If you are not able to run it through desktop or C:\HJT then you have to use the Task Manager, available through CTRL+ALT+DELETE then choose New Task.
