vb.asd , svchost32.exe and worm2007.exe problem

  1. Howard,

    Here's the scenario which explains what exactly went wrong:

    I have AVG anti-virus free edition installed on my comp.
    > 8 A.M a regular scan process is scheduled. The test is completed with no threats or errors found.
    > I was chatting with a friend of mine and I get an unusual msg from him which had a hyper link. I followed the link only to end up in a blank page. When I asked her what the link was, she was surprised as she hadn't sent any link and she too had been getting such msgs from her other friends.
    I guess this is when the virus/spyware came onto my system

    Immediately, I ran AVG anti virus (this was around 11:30 AM the same day)and found 3 threats,

    vb.asd , svchost.ext and worm2007.exe

    Now avg anti virus says he's deleted these viruses.

    But, when I try to get my task manager up, I get a strange message saying my "task manager has been disabled by the administrator". Now, I know this is the prob caused by the spywares/viruses on.

    Howard, can you help me get rid of it and get my comp to the normal state.

    Regards,

    oh btw howard,
