Default Help, I'm stuck with a frikin vuirus!

Everytime I am on Windows, I hear the ding.wav play like that. I also recived some kind of crap saying that Windows Will shut down in 30 secs. Then, I recieve so many pop-ups, you can't believe. Anyone knows how to get rid of this POS?

OS: Win 2k pro

what anti-virus are u using? I imagine that u have already updated and scanned the whole computer?

start -> run -> msconfig -> startup and google for the processes. Disable the ones that are bad.

Updated and scanned. I am using avast! Home edition

msconfig doesn't "exist" under Win 2k. I don't have it

EDIT:

Here are some actions that I am also going to take:

-Install Firefox
-Install ZoneAlarm firewall
-Install AVG Free in adition of avast! Professional...meaning 3 anti-virus...check me if am doing something wrong
-Delete IE shortcuts so no one could acess it
-No more illegal downloading (exept for LM and bittorrents) i won't go in detrails
-Keep Antiviruses updated
-Buy Ad-aware SE 1.06 Pro in addition of Ad-aware SE personal, Spybot SD and Hijackthis!
-Install Windows 2000 SP4

Yes, get Windows XP, best option
Sometimes not stable but the benefits definately outweigh those of windows 2000 ...

not all XP cd's are bootable...
thats why the 6 bootable discs are made available from the microsoft site...

I really don't think thats the case here though!!!


FYI, instal firefox isn't actually going to 'fix' anything. once it's broken changing your browser won't really
