I am trying to diagnose a virus in an XP computer. Ran Adaware 2008 and Stinger and came back with a clean bill of health which certainly isnt the case. Uninstalled Mcafee and added Panda. While running a system wide scan the computer shut down and rebooted. With that came the big problems, all of my usb's are disabled, everything listed in device manager under network adapters have the yellow exclamations, along with my display adapter, floppy and modem, along with com and lpt ports, and everything under sound video and game controllers. Its a gateway system with a systme recover cd/dvd which i am hesitant to use. Also task manager is shutoff and the two registry attempts to reactivate have failed. Upon restart Panda came up with these infections ps1.exe,psof1.exe, and sccntr.exe. I am currently attempting another system scan with panda.
