I have an older computer With Windows XP (no SP installed) that was not used much but to access the web. It has some viruses and stuff. I don't know where to start. Should I do the XP updates first or clean up the viruses? I just enabled the Windows firewall and I put on Hijackthis (which I had to rename to get to run) but that is all. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Janet

I've been waiting for help trying not to do much to mess up things more. Maybe someone could just tell me what I should do first? Should I remove the Microsoft VM and install the SP's in order - 1, 2 then 3? Or should I start trying to remove the viruses? I'm not sure if the viruses will interfere with the XP updates but not having Java is preventing me from using online scanners. Please help me? Janet

I guess I am just going to be talking to myself here. I ran Trendmicro Housecall which deleted some files. Going to try to keep cleaning off viruses first, then deal with updating Windows.

So I finished with all the Windows Updates through SP 3 and all went well. Also updated to IE 7. Going to run another scan and then load an anti-virus program. Guess I helped myself. Used the advice on here though. Love this site even though no one will talk with me.

Yeah, I had my doubts that I could do this but it all worked out. I had a day off from work today and wanted to tackle this and get it done. Everything seems to be working great now.

One thing is for sure, bleepingcomputer.com is the best forum!

I had some problems fixed with the assistance from these guys and it certainly is frustrating when you have a PC problem - it's like the house has caved in on you! Be sure to read through some of the existing topics; they are sure to get your started in pinning down those niggiling little buggers!

Good Luck AND remember bleepingcomputer rules!
