  1. I think I may have a virus butI cannot find it to get rid of it.
    OK heres what happens, I use my PC and after a random amount of time my calculator opens two or three times then my pc just shuts down - i have tried spybot S&D Mcafee stinger and AVG 7.5 but I still cannot find what is causing this....any ideas?

    Go and read the Trojan Pakes and other nasties preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as an attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)

    Nimda Virus??

    Hi I have got a virus on my PC which I think is a NIMDA virus, basically my hard drive keeps getting filled up with desktop.eml files
    no matter how many times I delete these they all just come straight back - I have tried the symantec removal and Mcafee stinger but none of them can find any virus on my machine.....Any ideas would be most welcomed.

    I have merged your new thread into this one.

    I hope you will follow the instructions and get back to me this time. ;)

    Take a look at this article/removal instructions HERE.
    This should at least tell you if you really do have this particular virus.


    Then, go and read the Trojan Pakes and other nasties preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.
