I have a virus on the family PC. Not sure how I got it, but Macfee system gaurd poped up and showed several registry changes requested...Internet Explorer brower helpers, setting to turn of file option in Explore (to hide system files). Attpeted to add a nnnnnnnnnn.exe to system startup (RUN), etc.
In got in, not sure how. I've run many virus scanners (Macfee, MRI [Geek squad tools set - weird thing is when it goes into VRAM OS mode it does not see my primary drive and Windows instance!! Almost like it hidden, so it never can scrub while unconnected to Windows], Seach and dystroy, etc) and my one remaining issue (that I can see;) )is....
When I reboot and system starts up Mcafee alert pops up with C:\Windows\System32\Service.exe Buffer Overflow prevented! Twice this pops up and then goes away..
Please help me. I have a pretty good understanding of the system and have the tools (I think - I downloaded "Hijack This" already)
Thank you in advance,
