I recentley got the WIN32.P2P-Worm.Alcan.a out of my system (allong with a few hundred other things that had been lurking in my system). I was relevied to find i had gottten rid of it, but was soon very fustrated. It seems that some system files got deleted, resulting in some of the visual settings missing. FOr example, the theme for Windows XP has been replaced by windows Classic. When I went to change it back to the XP theme, i found it was no longer avalible. i was wondering if anone could help. any help would be appreciated.

Don't worry; Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

System file check might find it but the repair will cover all the bases

Yeah, that's what got me through the Alcan.a problem. And i think it was because I set Ewido to delete infected files manually that this problem was started. It's a very helpful guide.

I have the same problem! The thing is i don't have a Windows CD, i think it's in my computer... so i need to contact custumer service and they will send me one?

Do i absolutely need one?

I bought my computer less than a year ago, don't worry i've got a licence for windows.
