Hey folks, great forum you have here. Well, the issue I am having is my explorer shuts down and restarts over and over. I attempted to shut things down via the msconfig however to no avail. Just before the problem started, I got one of those pop-ups telling me I should install some bogus virus protection and I closed it using the X in the corner. Next thing I notice is my command box open. So I reached over and pulled the plug from my computer. (is that normally a bad idea?) When I restarted it, I did so in safe-mode. I did a virus scan which found a trojan. (big surprise) Don't remember the name, but it was in my sys32 files. Deleted and rebooted. Went to my C-drive to see if I could temporarily move norton from the start-up folder and as I clicked on it... the rest is history. I have since Run the ComboFix. This seems to have worked however, 1. what other steps do I need to take to ensure that this menace is gone? And 2. how can I prevent it from happening again? This bleeping computer has been a long head-ache since Dec. when while manually removing a virus my power went out and my computer had to be restored. It still has not fully recovered. (still missing some drivers, and refuse to pay for suggested bios update) Grrr. Just let me know whose fingers I can break for creating this and I will be happy enough. :^( Thanks for your time in advance.
