this is the first time i have had this happen but ever since i removed about 20 worms from my registry and restarted and until this morning i can not do a chkdsk from the tools tab on the properties section on the menu from my hd. i ran an microsoft scan and found a system hijacker and thought that would cure it but it didnt help. i have these programs. its alot.

spyware guard, norton av 2004, microsoft spyware antispyware beta1,spyware doctor,spybot s@d 1.4, tmas-web scan,windows malicious software removal tool, copy me to the desktop scanner from trend micro, fix my doom e-mail scanner, tsc scanner, spywareblaster, cwshredder, noadware, alertspy, pc orion, xoftspy, palspyware remover, and registry mechannic, i have not ran a few of these that i normally run but if they do not work what can i do to fix this problem besides a redo of my os. i do have sevice pack 2 and za freeware trial for a fw and my windows fw.

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y then press enter then reboot, do not disturb this until it loads to the desktop which could be a couple of hours

When you press enter, do you get a box which say no can do as it is locked, type Y to confirm for next boot

well no. but i think i found the problem. i just started running the copy me to the desktop scanner i got from a friend of mine and it found the worm JUBON_A. i will have to run this scan aganin to make sure its gone once i restart after the scan is done then i run it again which takes another 2 hrs. hopefully this might solve the problem.

You can do this to double check

Please go here:

Malware Removal Guide

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, ask for advice in the Malware Forum

In some rare instances SYSTEM can loose access rights to the hard drive.
I ran into a similar problem one time. With XP Pro I fixed it by opening "My Computer" then
tools>folder options>view tab uncheck "use simple file sharing" Apply>OK button

then Right click C: drive Properties>Security tab and make sure SYSTEM is listed in the user/group box
If it is not add it and give full access.

If you have XP home there maybe another way to do the same thing but im not sure.

I expect you will keep generating errors until malware pinpoint the source
