  1. Hi i need urgent help to remove these viruses. Everytime i attempt to delete them it reappears, and i can tell its slowing down my computer quite badly.

    Furthermore, there are occasions when they automatically open internet explorer and randomly spam a site called "www.ctv...something" and then i have to end the iexplorer process in task manager. I've also noticed that this virus doesn't allow me to open hidden files...when i go Tools > Folder Options > View > Tick view hidden files. It has also stuffed up my msn messenger i think.

    Can someone please assist me as soon as possible !

    Kind Regards,

    Urgent help hey?

    Windows XP SP2
    Internet Explorer v6.00
    No Antivirus
    Really strange startups
    And you need to go through this GUIDE anyway

    My recommendation:
    Reinstall Windows clean
    This time update all Windows Security Updates ;)
    Update all drivers
    Steer clear of the worst P2P program Limewire
    Install free Avira Antivirus

    That would be the quickest fix, most definitely

    Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

    Link 1
    Link 2

    * IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

    • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools

    • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

    • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

    • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


    Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


    Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

    When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt log in your next reply.
