Hi everyone,
I have a lenove T61 laptop and a couple of days ago i clicked on a new folder located in my pen drive which activated in regsvr virus.I have Norton Internet Security which i was surprised to find could not detect it so I had to find it manually. I managed to locate the regsvr.exe file in windows/system32 folder and deleted it. I also deleted all the entries pertaining to it in the registry. The problem is that I did not do this in a particular order that is given in most of the guides online about removing this virus. Hence there are still traces of it remaining. One of the problems I am having is that there are multiple instances of iexplore running when i check in the windows task manager sometimes upto 7-8. This is using up memory big time and its causing my pc to slow down drastically. I suspect this is related to that virus and i have searched on the internet for its solution but i havent found one that has been helpful yet. The only option I see now is to reinstall windows completely and I do not want to do that for obvious reasons.
I desperately need help with this issue and if anyone has a solution to it please please let me know about it.
