Ugh, so I have this virus now, the Wiawow32.sys. I am running Windows XP. Now that I have this virus, it won't let me open up Task Manager, any type of Web Browser, any type of anti spyware programs, and just about any other program. I was going to use malware bytes but like I said, can't open any programs. But, I can open up My Computer, C:, Recycle Bin, System32 and all those other folders. So help me please?

also, I need to know how to do it manually, without programs. Cause, like I said, I cant run any programs. Oh and btw, I am posting this from a different computer. On the infected computer, I can't use internet. I've searched everywhere and cant find anything :thumbsup:

Mod Edit: Topic moved to more appropriate forum~ TMacK

I figured this out by myself this morning. :thumbsup: All I did was do system restore in safe mode. (I got on safe mode with out getting blue screen, thank God) Restored it to 2 days prior to getting the virus and now running MalwareBytes going to fix those infected objects. Also, planning to do some other stuff on there. I don't know what yet though. Does anyone know any good free programs that could help clean after whats left when MalwareBytes is done?
