I posted this topic a while ago and have had no replies. I could use some help. If this invader has truly taken over all my admin rights how can I change this? Must I reformat C drive and install a new operating system? Or will the virus still be there after this is done?
malwareremover2007 infected my notebook last month. I'm running XP Tablet on a Fujitsu Lifebook P1510D. After the infection I installed Norton 360 and the popups stopped, appearring that all was well. The malware installed the tulip wallpaper as my desktop background and now I cannot change it. In the display properties dialog box the "Desktop" menu selection has been replaced with "Screensaver". Right clicking on an image and selecting "Save as Wallpaper" does nothing. I attempted to do a restore to a point prior to infection but the system will not allow this. I tried to restore from disk but the system does not allow the attempt. My BIOS has been locked with a password not of my doing. As I have no interal DVD, I must use an external USB optical drive. The drive is operational normally but on bootup I can select it as the boot drive and the system ignores it.
What to do?
