Unhappy Virus

so i was on the internet, then windows explorer failed, and then restarted... as soon as it started up a red circle with an x in it on my programs running bar with a windows pop-up appeared, it said "you computer is infected with spyware" i go to task manager and end all the processes that i find that arent normal processes then go to the system folder and delete them, i know i didnt delete the critical files that i need to run the system, so i restart and the OS is screwed it loads XP but wont bring up the login screen. so i ended reformating and thats what its doing now, (im on a spare computer)

what a lame virus, it didnt even have to have me load an execuatble and run it.

why do people make viruses?

PS

screw internet explorer

And this helps him how? Come on man....

Ok, I need you to run HJT (Found here http://thetechaddict.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=3)

Instructions

Quote:
Following these steps are important to being able to help you solve your problems correctly. We also suggest that you print out these instructions to make it easier to follow. It is also a good idea to check out some of the other threads, in this section, to see what info is needed and how they were posted. Submitted logs that clearly identify they have taken all the steps below and have enclosed a description of the problem will be addressed before logs that do not identify the problem or appear not to have been run by the steps written below. In short. You have a much better chance of getting your log read if you follow the steps.

PREPARING YOUR COMPUTER FOR HIJACK

8. Choose ?Fix Selected Problems? and allow Spybot to fix the "RED" entries.

9. REBOOT to complete the scan and clear memory.

STEP FOUR


Download and install the latest version of Hijack This. Current version is v1.99.1. The program can be found here. . .
http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
Be sure to read the instructions at the sight for downloading and installing. Do not attempt to fix anything before submitting a log.

Be sure to include a description of your problem and anything you have tried to fix it! Also include that you have done all the steps above so that the specialists know you have prepped the system.

PLEASE NOTE:

Reading each log can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. That does not include the time it takes to respond with all the fixes that will be required to help you.There are very few Specialists available with the expertise required to help you safely solve your problem. Our specialists have put in alot of time training to help you and do so on a volunteer basis. We are very lucky to have some of the best in the world. Please be patient as there are often more logs than specialists to go around. If your log has not been read within 7-10 days, feel free to contact one of the admins so that they can assist you.

EXAMPLE OF WHAT YOUR LOG SHOULD LOOK LIKE WHEN SUBMITTED.


The description of your problem and all the steps you have done to try to correct the problem, go here. Be sure to let the experts know that you followed the steps for prepping the system!
