Eg : Desktop pic disappearing and screen turning green
Pc running very slow
Then all of a sudden when my daughter went on it the dam thing popped up with your computer is infected! please activate Internet Security 2010 to repair the problem
Lucky she asked me 1st and i told her not to do it
I went upto her flat and ran SUPER Antispywere and it found loads of stuff in her system
I also started to run McAfee but it just sent the pop ups mental
I also went into msconfig/start up and found the dreaded IS2010 & SMSS32.EXE so they were un-ticked
I didn't un tick the LYESYS32.EXE though coz was unsure but as the pc was closing down to reboot it un-ticked it anyway
When the pc came back to the log in screen and i tried to log in using my daughters password all it did was came up with her deck-top pic but no icons and played the log in music and then instantly logged out again playing the log out music and went back to the log in screen
I am administrator for the pc so i tried my details and it did the same thing
I even tried to get in the pc in safe mode and all it did was rebooted the pc
I cant get in full stop
My daughter is running a legit version of xp pro with all updates in it
Pc has McAfee total 2009 doesn't run out till feb this year
Pc has firewall running in pc as well
Does anybody thing that if i put the windows disk in and do a repair it will at least get me inside to try to sort it?
Or does it need a full formate?
My daughter has her itunes in her pc for her ipod so we don't really want to loose that as the music on it she borrowed off friends she no longer talks to anymore so couldn't borrow them again
