If you all could please help me with this virus (?) problem I would be very grateful :thumbsup:

Windows 2000.

I went to work yesterday and when i came back all my applications except for internet explorer went to a blank link like my computer is no longer able to read or use them. Including all my Antivirus, anything on CDs, even when i opt to run programs using the run command.

On top of that I get an access denied message when I try to use ctr-alt-del, open windows settings or anything in the controll pannel including add/remove. I can however get my list of running processes when using ctr-alt-del but that is the extent of what i can do.

The computer stopps up after about 30 mins of being on.

Thank you for your time, I have to keep this message short as my computer will stop up soon. Thanks for the help.

Please download and run Processexplorer


http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb896653.aspx

Under file and save as, create a log and post here

copy and paste into a reply

If Process explorer won't execute rename it Iexplore.exe

We may have to use this trick more than once so put each renamed file in a seperate named folder.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I tried as hard as I could to get this to run. I changed the name to Iexplore.exe and that didn't work either. Any other suggestions?

In the meantime would you try to boot into safe mode and run your AV?

I can't run Process Explorer or AntiVirus in safe mode. They act like the same non exicutable files as they do in a normal boot.
