Firstly, thank you in advance to anyone that can help me out!
Running Windows XP, SP2. Accidentally enabled an Active X control that appears to have infected my system with the following:
This heftly little package keeps setting the PC clock to 2004, sets the browser home page to one from China, and is no doubt doing a whole lot of other nefarious stuff in the background.
Tried the following diconnected from the internet (cable removed from back of system)
Scanned using Zone Alarm Internet Security suite that identified the agents listed above. Using the Windows Control Panel Add/Remove Programs it looks like I unisntalled win32.adware.bhp.av and win32.sogou0 portions. When running Zone Alarm scan again, win32.adware.cinmus.xe and win32.trojan.psw.yir are still present. Choose to delete these using the Zone Alarm options.
Unfortunatley when I try to reboot in Safe Mode, the system won't let me. It will only start in Normal Mode, so whatever is there is preventing me from getting into safe mode. When the system starts, everything has all been reinstalled and I'm back to square 1.
I have also turned off system restore points but to no avail. Clock keeps resetting back to 2004.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
