Hi guys, this is my first post here, and I hope someone can help.
A few days ago I got infected with Trojan.Vundo, and all efforts to repair or delete the virus were unsuccessful, Norton Antivirus 2005 keeps an open window saying a virus is found, but couldn't be removed.
Tried Norton 2005 safe mode scanning, Symantec Vundo removal tool, Spy sweeper, nothing helped, so I thought that I can manually delete the infected file (c:\windows\web\expweb.dll) by running Windows Recovery Console from the XP bootable disk, but it says NO DISK FOUND. Now, how is that possible when I can log into Windows?
I guess the virus has affected the partition table or the MBR, I don't know what to do :tazz:
Any reply would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
