Hi

Its my first posting and I have tried to read the guides but could not find anything hence the post.

I am running XP Pro. I have the win32.netsky virus as I keep getting pop up boxes to that effect when I log in.
I looked for fixes, but all fixes say load the task manager and then do...

I cannot load the task manager on CTRL + ALT + DEL: as it is greyed out (by virus I guess). I cant run any programs either (any .exe file ) as it say it does not know how to run it. I cant get to CMD as it wont run that either. Logged in safe mode and still the same. tried one guide I found here which suggested RKill (and even the one renamed as Iexplore.exe) still it does not run the programs. What can I do if it wont run any programs and I cant disable the task or edit reg in safe mode!!

I can browse file using My computer though and can use a USB stick to copy files over.

Looking on some more guides I found links say that it could SE 2010. SO i looked at my C drive and found some of the files mentioned. I found 41.exe and the others mentioned in windows/system32 ( all dated the day I got the virus) but none of the file mentioned in Program files directory (The security essentials folders). I rename the files in system32 and rebooted. Now I cant log on at all. I cant log on in safe mode or normal. SO I cant go back and put the file back to what they where

I am hoping one of these are my options

1) Can I remove the HD - use as slave in another PC and run some other tools to remove the virus or rename/delete the files

2) Can I remove the HD- use as slave in another PC and copy over my data file and then format and start again. DOnt mind doing this but prefer option 1

Pleae advise if possible

Many thanks

Bhupesh

Hi

Is there anyone that can provide me with any advise on this. Should I be waiting longer for a reply?
