I am running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 with Service Pack 2 on my laptop and even with Zone Alarm and Firewall on somehow I received this virus.
The symptoms seem to be the same as everyone else - my laptop shutdown and restarted and I have the delself.bat icon on my desktop.
I ran Ad-Aware but no luck in cleaning the Virus.
I downloaded Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and even manually downloaded the update discussed in another posting on this forum. When I click to launch this application, nothing happends
I downloaded ComboFix and when I click to launch, nothing happens.
I downloaded Superantispyware but everytime I try to launch I get a message saying Superantispyware encountered a problem and must shut down.
When I try to launch Ad-Aware again, it never completes the scan and the laptop locks up.
I have tried to perform an on line scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com
but the scan never completes even though I was successful in the past.
At this point I could just reformat the hard drive however I am away from home and do not have access to my original set up disks with Windows XP, or any of my other set up software discs.
Despite having this virus, I seem to be able to access the Internet ok via Wi-Fi from my hotel.
Any and all help would be appreciated.
