I've a bit of a battle with a recent virus that I've experienced, my home PC is a winXP(Pro) that has been embattled for the last 36 hours and this is a more spohistictaed virus than I have previously seen.

I got an initial warning message suggestion: -

Warning! Pote`ntial Spyware` Operation!

Your computer is making unauthorized copies of your system and Internet files. Run full scan now to prevent any unauthorised access your files. Click yes to download spyware remover.

There is also a screen that displays the same false warning located at "

However, when trying to search out a resolution I've discovered this one was not so simple. A number of key components became apparent including

Task Manager Unavailable with the message that: Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator

Regedit Unavailable with the message that: Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator

Gpedit.msc was also disabled through the early stages but running through the various steps managed to get this going

Early in the attempt to isolate the problem I downloaded the avast scan which highlighted some more apparent bugs including :

Win32:Warezov-CLK [Wrm]
Win32:Small-EPJ [Trj]

There are other intermittent issues, however the most persistent issue being Win32:Small-EPJ appear alternative every minute or so or floods in every few seconds.

The aVast!warning dialogue identifes the actial virus although the message text on the bottom of the screen suggest that these source of these include the following locations:-


I've have run through the various recommended steps in order to prepare to submit to submit the Hijackthis as per your preparation guide, alI suspect with mixed results.

The avast warnings are more frequent than ever and when trying to get to microsoft updates I found that this access had also been disabled.

When looking at the Sygate Log Viewer, there was a message..

Somebody is scanning your computer.
Your computer's UDP ports:
26824, 1468, 30547, and 17337 have been scanned from

Please see attached log.

At any rate I would appreciate some help.
