:tazz: this anoying virus, made me format ny computer before i could actually erased that viruse out of my system. and to all....."all my files with it" it didn't give me a chance to even copy my files........ :)


sad...sad...sad...



Now I'm readying my self if a time like this will happen again to me and it even may happen to you....

this virus makes your computer restart over and over for more than 5 times after your start up..

after it gives you time and you have already notice it...
you will use a antiviruse.. as always ..this viruse knows that your using it so it will do, he will restart your computer again and you cannot catch it, quarantine, nor delete because as i have experience this virus can sence when your getting to him and will restart over and over again.....

I already tried safe mode.... tried erasing the whole document thingy....
it did not work I tried installing a new XP :) secret I have discovered a secret......
(without erasing the old one)

i tried to erase the whole system...........
did not work


the last thing i could think of is formatting...
i have succeded in deleting the virus.....

I'm asking for a more easy way in killing this virus....
not formating my hardisk please....


Thanks for your help

sory if my english is a little bit to .... you know ....hehehe

You should post in the malware support forum, but anyway this is what i think you should do.

PSGuard is some kind of malware. The best thing you can do to protect against that kind of software is installing a good Antivirus and an spyware remover.
I have had Avast! and Ad-aware for a long time and no virus or malware got into my computer.
Also, i you have DSL or Cable you should also consider installing a firewall.
