Freeware is the answer

Download the following
3.AVG antivirus
This should clean up any viruses, trogens,spyware,etc,etc...
The reason your screen is upside-down, is that some viruses send the command "ctrl-alt-down arrow."

Hah!, found the Intel Extreme graphic setting was changed to rotate 180 degrees, after correct the setting, and scaned with Spybot S&amp now the workstation seems working fine.

Intel Extreme Graphics

by beads In reply to can you please advise

Its a proprietary built in video card. To change the settings:



Control Panel

Look for a blue icon probably twoard the middle of the window that says: Intel(R)Extrem... (e Graphics).

A new window will pop up. Check the following:

- Settings Generally somewhere in the 768x1024 for a 17" inch monitor is a good starting place.

- Rotation These are "radio" buttons. Meaning that only one can be selected at a time. Much like old AM/FM radios in cars. Click 'Normal' instead of 'Rotate 180'. Of course this will be upside down so have your son pick up the monitor first and hold it until you correct the situation. (*Thats a joke, by the way but it would work*)

Odd that Trend didn't have a virus name

Trend is usually pretty good about identifying virus content. Try updating your signatures and scan again. No AV is perfect but had good results from Trend.
