    I want to headbutt this fvcking thing in the tit. I'm having the same problem as most have mentioned (some programs do not open at all, task manager won't open except in Safe Mode.) all occuring at my uncle's office where the workers apparently open up any email they recieve. Nothing unusual in MSCONFIG that I can see, just AVG and a few other things I googled that turn out OK. No winupdates.exe found as recommended by Symantec's gaobot fix that was previously brought up in this thread. When I went to try the windows/system32 as mentioned earlier, it tries to access a webpage, but the internet is not currently working at all on one infected computer and VERY sporadically on the other. Here's that fancy HJT dealy that all the kids seem to be using these days:

    Yay, I fixed two of my programs. Search Companion, and Disk Defragmenter. Here's how I fixed it,

    I solved two of these problems WITHOUT reformatting. It was simple. All I did was run my Norton Disk Doctor, Norton WinDoctor, and a few other Norton Utilities. These things only come with Norton System Works though, I think. Regedit still doesn't work for me, but maybe I'll find a way to fix, if I need to, becuase I just use regedit.exe now.

    I did another scan a few days ago, and I was STILL infected. I did an online virus scan from Panda. And it found that I was still infected with the virus W32/Alcan.A.worm. Well, anyways the scan got rid of it, but I'm still wondering if I'm still infected.
