Well I am guessing that the virus you had was a rootkit and it embeded itself in your kernels64.exe so that when you delete the virus it wrecks your system.

Now as too where you can I find I do not know it is possible if you boot off of your windows XP cd you could repair that file.

If that doesn't work I think you are going to need to reinstall windows.

Kernels64.exe is a spyware file deposited on your computer by Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Tibs.aw. See the following link http://www.viruslist.com/en/viruses/encyclopedia?virusid=105011. This is telling you that your attempts to rid yourself of this have only been partially successful.

Your posts on 12/28/05 and 1/5/06 regarding this have given you much information. Therefore, since you are having so much trouble over this, I recommend that you save needed information from the computer and repartition/reformat/reinstall the OS.

Some forms of malware such as this are often too time consuming to remove (even if they can be completely removed--some can't). Three hours of reinstalling/updating is probably far less time than you have already spent on this problem.

Before reinstalling, you can try editing the Registry. Navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and delete the entry "System" = "%System%\kernels64.exe".

If this is the only thing calling for this file, it just may solve your problem. Best regards.

You do not want this file.

kernels64.exe is missing because it is a file used by the virus you contracted and it went missing when you deleted it with Norton, you probably have a registry setting that tries to run the virus when you start up, download a tool called "hijackthis" which will scan the registry then get rid of the suspicious run entry in your registry.

or go to start menu, select run, type "cmd" hit enter key, type regedit hit enter navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and delete the suspect registry entry from there.
