Win32.LinkReplacer???

  1. I did something stupid......My friend told me about this video that was gross and I wanted to check it out. I ended up getting a trojan.win32.LinkReplacer. It pretty much screwed everything up. I was not able to open firefox or IE. I was not able to open up any files or it would be very very slow. So I reinstalled windows Vista Home Premium. I now have a windows.old folder, should I keep it or delete it? Should I still run through the steps in the viruses & malwares thread?

    Any tips, suggestions, ideas are grealy appreciated.


    I know, I know......don't go searching for crap....I've learned my lesson..:(
