The problem now is I can start up and run and connect to the internet, the machine will run for a while then it freezes; I then have to power off.
In general the machine behaves slightly jittery, there is a windows style box on the task bar and I get the message stating ‘your computer is infected windows has detected a spyware infection’…and inviting me to download antispyware to protect the computer etc.
Attempting to connect to Symantec results in a LU1814:LV could not retrieve data etc.
Running Symantec scan deleted a ‘Hacktool.rootkit’ threat but the machine is still causing problems…..can you help?
I am running Windows XP pro
