Operating System: Windows XP Home edition. Anit-Virus Software: Norton Anti-Virus 2005, ver 184.108.40.206. I received the W32.ALLIM virus many weeks ago. Norton appeared to remove the exe (userint32.exe) before I even knew I had it. Sounds good, eh? However, I noticed that whenever I logged onto the system, it would take a long time, eventually producing an error that the "userint32.exe could not be found." I would select "Ok" and continue on as ususal. I did a little research and found that file associated with the W32.ALLIM virus, but of course, the user32int.exe file no longer existed on my system. Thus, the error. In an effort to speed up my login process and remove the "not found" error, I attempted to edit the registry file to remove any references to the user32int.exe file... Yikes!!!! What resulted was my inability to log into my system at all! The login screen would come up, I would select my username (I have three children, each with their own accounts), enter my password and the screen would just blink and return to the login screen. I purposely entered a bad password, and the system asked me if I forgot it, so I knew I had entered it correctly on the previous attempts. Fortunately, one of my children was already logged on and I was able to use the system recovery feature to restore my registry and log back in. Today, I attempted to log on and again get the quick flash and back to the log in screen. I did not edit the registry and everyone else in the house are strictly "users", and wouldn't know how or even what the registry file is. Does anyone know the "proper" way to remove the W32.ALLIM virus? I am going to use system restore again, going back two weeks and pray that I can get in again.
