Norton AV first told me that the intrusion detection wasn't operating on an old Win 2000 PC. Found SDFix as a tool to kill Worm or whatever.

During execution, SDFix calls "FINDSTR.exe", and the error message "cannot open FINDSTR" appears.

During the next part of the process, a "Registry Editor error appears indicating "Cannot import assosfix.reg: Error opening the file. There may be a disk or file system error."

Then after some time, the system indicates that a restart is required. When restarted, another part of the program attempts to find specific worms. This program hangs.

Any suggestions?

Is the command on the computer or corrupted?

With xp it's in the sys32 folder

There are several tools in sdfix if you look?

Most any W2k computer I see needs either sp4 or a repair disk with sp4 slipstreamed, just too old and corrupted

I actually gave all my software and media for it to my last client that won't upgrade

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
