  1. hi all
    I have this virus. I have seen other forum entries where this is in system restore. It seems to be in c:\windows\new_drv.sys in my computer. AVG says "while opening" that file it finds it.
    I noticed that an administrator account was setup (administrator spelled wrong), and no one who uses the computer did that.
    The virus message pops up every time I start the computer.
    How do I get rid of it?

    Thanks a lot.

    It sounds like you got some nasty malware.

    Very important: Before deciding whether to clean or reformat your system, read this thread and decide what you want to do.

    If, after reading the above thread, you decide to clean your system, read this thread here: Viruses/spyware/malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly, then post fresh HJT and AVG logs as attachments into this thread.

    Cheers :)
