Hi!!

I'm new here and I got a quiet serious virus problem!

I was a "bit careless" while surfing in the net (no AV-software or firewall on the new system) so I got my Eee PC infected. Now everytime it starts I get a "Spyware Alert!"-message telling me that the machine is infected by the "Worm.Win32.NetSky"-virus and that I should run a full system scan (the message apears after I log in on Windows). As I mentioned I don't have a AV-software yet and the Norton Internetsecurity won't react.

Another "symptom" (besides the startup message) is a "background image" stating in big red letters "SYSTEM IS INFECTED!".

Norton Internetsecurity (which is the trialversion and which I forgot to start beforehand) isn't much of a help (system freezes or reboots while the scan is running). But it notifies that the threat "winupdate86.exe" was found and then that the same threat was removed and that the system is now secure. It does it every time.

So, could anyone help me please! I will run HijackThis and post the log when told to!

Thanks beforehand!

And YES, I will be more carefull next time ;)
