I just spent the last 25 hours over three days trying to debug a terrible virus/trojan combination. Nothing elsewhere worked. And, through searching on Google for a solution to C:\WINDOWS\system32]drivers\core.cache.dsk, I stumbled into this place.
It took me all of a half-hour to read ideas and troubleshooting guides in the Spyware removal forum to find the right tools that I needed. It took two different tools- but the combition of MALWAREWBYTES and ADAWARE isolated the problems that I just tore my hair out over for the last three days.
That's right. 25 hours plus elsewhere on the net without success, and then a 1/2 hour here, and I was on track, knowledgeable about what I was fighting against, armed with the right info and links to the right tools, and ready to do battle.
And, two hours later, I am totally VIRUS FREE!
Thank you in advance. I didn't need to use the Hijack This tool- although I now know where to come when things get so out of hand that I was thinking of just junking the whole machine and starting over.
