Long story but now can do a normal XP boot but two error messages pop up about not finding a certain file. Disappears when closed but still have what I believe is the Win32:SdBot-3239 virus. It really has control. It will not allow me to go to any on-line antivirus programs or updates. Simply goes to a "This page cannot be found" or to a "search" screen. Tried to download AVG but will not let you got to their homepage nor any round about route to it. Also the supplied Norton will not allow you to get "Live update". You cannot access the Symantec site. I managed to download Firefox and Opera browsers but get same problem trying to get to any sites via these. Browsing Google got me little or no help... some forums talked about going into Registry and looking for certain telltail changes but none seem to be there in my PC so can't make any changes there. Other posts seem to indicate this virus came through MSN messenger and by accepting a picture file. Anyway I can't figure out what else to do. Any suggetions?
