win 98 corrupt explorer

By melographic ·
I have been experiencing some frustrating problems on my computer since 3 days now. I can no longer open a document from the explorer. If save any document on the desktop and trying to retrieve it later, the document will change to a program,if I click on the program it will produce another file, if you click this file, it will reproduce another,and the chain goes on and on. sometimes it will change to a "recycled folder" Even if I double click 'my comper' icon on the desktop and trying to access a file on the A directory or the floppy disk the same thing happens. The frustrating side of my story is that at the end the document could no longer be opened.

I try to scan every disks with NAV, but in each case I was told that the disks arefree of virus.

Please, kindly advice me on what to do as this problem has started preading to other computers on the network.

THANKS AND GOD BLESS

If the problem is spreading to other machines on the network immediately remove any of thos e machines from the network. It sounds like a virus. Did you use the most recent NAV data file?? If so try another anti-virus software like Mcafee.

Sounds as though a virus is present and taking the computer off the network will be the only way you will be able to quarenteen the virus,which may have spread to other computers so this may mean that eaach computer has to be taken off the network
