My computer has been acting strange for a while now, so today i formated my computer.

Upon restarting my computer after everything was re setup it was still running fine.
The problems start almost as soon as i plug my computer into my cable modem.

I some how managed to get ad-aware and norton 2005 installed with the most recent definitions, but now the programs terminate unexpectedly

Now i even have trouble accessing the internet to try and install windows service pack 2 and other security updates

My taskbar also locks up occasionally as well so i can not restart my computer properly anymore

Also pressing ctrl alt del no longer brings up my task manager window.

If any of these symptoms sound like any know worms or virus's any information would be of huge help
I have access to a second computer which doesnt seem to be affected on which i can download and burn any tools that may be required.

Since you formatted you have nothing to lose.

Follow this guide to learn how to delet the partition and remove yourself of any worms or viruses that survived normal formatting.

format xp and delete partitions.
