hi i'm a newbie here and a bummer when it comes to viruses, trojans, whatever. i came across another problem again. may u pls extend help? here goes:
i am usually very careful with removable medias but last night, somebody used a flash drive in my laptop without my approval so i have now a, i guess a worm..
when i turned on my unit, it doesn't seem to have a prob actually, but when a pirated cd began to lag, i usually end this process using task manager. but lo and behold, my task manager is disabled. so i went to Run
and keyed in cmd
, typed c:\>dir /ahs
and found a sowar.vbs
in the list. i tried running regedit
to delete files which ends in vbs
, but it was also disabled!
i am using semantec's av. it did detect the virus last night actually but wasn't able to destroy it, whatsoever. and i can't even update my virus definition now. my OS is windows xp sp 2.
Please HELP!! thanks a lot and God bless!
