I need help because I have been able to figure things out in the past, but this is fishy and I can't even
put my finger on what it is. However, I believe it to be spyware of some sort and have
halted internet traffic for now.
I have a Gateway Windows XP laptop. Last night, Trend Micro PC-cillin starting giving me a bunch of
warnings that my system had been altered. I opened the main console, and removed
all that came up under Spyware.
The target of these files are under
C:\Program files\Internet Explorer\IExplore.EXE
The location of these files are
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\TEMP\
Files that were added are
This is the message I keep getting from Windows.
"Files that are required for Windows to run
properly have been replaced by unrecognized
versions. To maintain system stabilty, Windows must restore
the original versions of these files.
Insert your Windows XP Professional CD2 now."
What I don't get, is why is it asking for Professional and not Home Edition.
I can't find what disc there talking about for the life of me,
and I don't know how to fix it if I don't.
Would system restore be a good option? Should I
remove the above 6 files? And has anybody had a similar situation?
Any additional info needed to solve this issue would be gladly provided.
Thank in advance.
