I alowed my pc to become infected with a virus (maybe more) last night. I unplugged the network cable temporarly till someone who knows more about this tells me its ok to plug it back in. I have webroot spysweeper but it is unable to remove what its calling mal gerneric-a. I saw the 8 step process but I wanted to make sure it was ok to plug my pc back into the net safely to download the recommened programs. Also I am unable to run programs such as system restore, windows task manager, regedit, or any other of the normal utility programs I would normaly use. Thank you for any advice. =) *edit* I am running xp sp2 on a system I built a few years ago. I am more then willing to figure out any other information that is needed. I will also try and run the 8 steps once I know its ok to plug back into the net (im worried that my pc wont let me install them due to the virus).
