RE: Virus clean up

by PoppaTab In reply to windows xp desktop icon c ...

Hello,

The very first thing I would do is turn off system restore on all drives. Then boot into Safe Mode and run your virus clean up again. Safe Modes is the best way to get through all files and folders. After the Safe Mode clean up; insert your windows cd/dvd into the correct drive and boot the computer from it. When the Windows cd/dvd loads be sure to let it load everything it wants: drivers, files, network, etc. When you get to the install screen; choose repair. Windows will detect any broken system items and repair. After booting once the repair is done; uninstall your anti-virus and install it again (for good measure), Surf on the web to: http://malwarebytes.org. You will be redirected to Download.com where you will be downloading: mbam-setup.exe. Install that and let it run a full scan on your computer. If you beleive you system is truly fixed, you can reinstall any programs that are still showing wrongly. I know there are others here that have more experience with this, but I thought I would throw this in.
