I'm looking at a friends system for him which has all sorts of Malware/Spyware etc.
The Active desktop now invites him to "Click here as your PC is infected". He is running Windows ME on a celeron 667mhz PC.
Upon startup it reports that WININET.dll is NOT FOUND.
I can't even access the CD Drives, I have to do a ctrl-Alt-Del to restart it each time as it hangs on this error report.
I did (once) manage to get to the desktop by listing running processes and ending "Explorer". It won't let me access the internet or properly install any programs like Adaware, AVG etc. I did manage to install and run HiJackThis but I have no way of saving the report.
The best I could do is to write down the running processes which are:
INTELL32 ..... spelled with 2 "L"'s
I have just managed to get into safemode, but I can't obviously access the CD drives as the drivers haven't loaded.
Any help & advice greatly appreciated!!
