Hi, was surfing jobs and typed in making money etc then somehow I cliked run on a site. The computer went beserk so I shut down. On restart I had a gambling site up which took a couple of tries to get rid of.

Decided to do a virus/spyware check......Mcafee would not scan and my 2 spy/malware progs were knocked out!

Mcaffe suggested after trying a few things removing and reinstalling. well now when I switch on I get a window saying NT Authority System C:\windows\system32\services.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code - 1073741482 system will now shut down

Only it doesn't, it just hangs with the desktop picture and no systems tray or icons. Tried starting in safe but that hangs too.

Reckon it's fried! Computer man say operating system buggered either on it's own or something blocking it but maybe you guys have come accross this. Tried Google and it seems I am not alone but cant seem to get a positive answer from there.

Any easily read advice appreciated :thumbsup:

I see various malware references to similar/same messages.

I am going to have this thread moved to one of our malware forums. Do not take any further instructions from anyone at this forum, take all instructions from now on at the seemingly appropriate malware site. That includes following any administrative procedures which are posted there.

Thanks.

Louis

just hangs with the desktop picture and no systems tray or icons.

Can you access Task Manager?
Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Ctrl+Shift then press Esc
Start>Run>type taskmgr and click OK

Once you are in Task Manager open the Applications window and end all tasks
Start a new task and type explorer.exe
Hopefully that should bring back the Desktop where you can run some scans

kinda worked it out for myself....

Reckon a or some files in the operating system were either currupted or blocked by some sort of nasty.

Being an HP pc it has a restore section to the harddrive which remains uneffected by an attack. Have done a recovery without loosing data but most of my added programs a duff but one by one I am updating them.

All working fine now, it's like haveing the old thing new again. SP1 (lol) nearly done update to SP2 then go get SP3!

Thanks all
