  1. Hi,

    I have the above mentioned virus on my USB key which has been transferred to my computer. I use the windows XP and Zone Alarm as my anti-virus.

    As reported in a lot of places that the virus affects orkut and firefox - mine does not. Though it does not allow me to enable "show hidden files" option and has seriously slowed my computer. Please let me know how I can get f=rid of this problem.

    Hi samee and welcome to TechSpot.:wave:

    Zone alarm is a firewall program and not an antivirus program.

    You need to have a read of this - If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, Combofix, , and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.
    We also need to know the result of Panda Antirootkit.

    This thread is for the use of samee only. Please don`t post your own virus/spyware problems in this thread. Instead, open a new thread in our security and the web forum.
