Hi I am having the same problem with Worm.Win32.Netsky or at least I think this is the virus. When I boot up my computer it comes on with it's fake windows scheme stating that I have a virus this is the name of it and it want's me to buy there junk :flowers:.

I have been fighting with this since about four pm yesterday.

I have ran ccleaner, avg, smitfraud, syhunter, spybot search/destroy.

I have tried to follow others advice on deleting it through reg edit but I can not find the names in the regedit. Every time I run a search on the regedit it crashes.

I even bought spybot because it seemed to be the most helpful detecting my taskmanager and wallpaper issues and enabling re enabling them but I have ran so many scans and looked through the regedit so many times.

Also the Malware bytes program I am having an error with I followed the link posted only to have an Error Code 707(3,0) when I attempt to run it with a random name.

I am using windows xp professional

Advice would be appreciated :thumbsup:

Hello .. have you run smitfraudfix yet? Using some of these tools on your own can have serious downside effects..
Disable spybot for these.

I would like to see part 1..
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
