Re: IEXLORE.EXE virus?
Ok, this sounds like to me a virus that attatched itself to the explorer.exe file, as is activated by it.
so to get rid of it, 1st turn off system restore, then bbot up to safe mode without the network.
once there, click start/ run/ type in regedit, and hit enter, now that you are in the registry:
< warning: changing stuff in the registry can sometimes have fatal results>
ok, highlight the little comp. at top, then go to edit/scrol down to find/ in the box wondow type in the name of the virus or in your case (copyre~1.exe), now click find next..
this will bring up all the files on your hhd that say copyre~1.exe...including whole folder's.
now highlight the file or folder, and at the top left/ click file / scroll down to EXPORT, and export it to your document folder or desktop.
now you can delete it from the registry, then click find next again....
keep doing this til the search finds no more, then go to window's folder & empty out the pre-fetch forlder.
then boot back up to windows & then turn back on the system restore.
