I am having serious problems with a 2000 laptop.

When switched on the system offers Virus Scan which, if run, now shows that no viruses are present.

A couple of days ago the following were found:


After investigating on this site, I have deleted a number of entries from the registry but still no luck.

The laptop does not have any internal CD or disk drives.

Have tried copying the BETA version of Microsift Anti Spyware from another unit without any sucess.

Any suggestions please.

Can you get into safe mode?

Have you got either a usb flash memory or usb hdd? If so try the following:

If you think you are infected submit a hijackthis log here.

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

Try running the following from safe mode (Getting to safe-mode) Sysclean you'll also need the virus template file from here lpt***.zip


DrWeb CureIT

Also try installing and running A2 Free and Ewido

I'd also run Spybot and Adaware

If your using Win2K/XP run adaware/spybot from "safe mode with command prompt"

At the C:\ prompt type the following:-

C:\progra~1\spybot~1\spybotsd.exe /autocheck /autofix

Before you deleted items in the registry would the laptop still boot? I suspect that you may have deleted something critical in the registry, if you have your going to be in trouble if you can't access a CD-Rom as a Repair install may be needed. Install via dos this should work on any usb hdd if you can get the usb drivers for it.
