Hello all,

This group helped me once before, and I'm hoping you may be able to help again. I am writing seeking help in removing a Trojan SPM/LX virus from my Dell PC. I have a Dell Dimension 4550 desktop, and Iím running Windows XP Professional. I keep getting Microsoft-like error messages telling me that my computer is infected with the Trojan SPM/LX virus, and to go to IDS Software to remove the virus. The virus also installed a red button with a white X in the lower right corner of the taskbar, changed the color of my desktop and placed another error message on the desktop. When I attempted to run a scan from my Symantec Antivirus, the computer froze. I turned off my PC, and turned it back on, and I got the ďblue screen of deathĒ with a message about a physical dump of data files. I turned it off again, and then tried to start the PC in safe mode, but now I canít even get my computer to start in safe mode. Iíd be happy to send whatever error codes Iíve received before my computer stopped Windows, but Iím not sure I can get into my PC to run any other logs. I'm not very computer savvy, but can follow directions. Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance . . .Sadie 24/7

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum so we can at least get you started.
