Am working on my brothers computer. Windows XP Media Center Edition. Avast found this virus "Win32:Bamital-AO" in C:\windows\explorer.exe and in C:\windows\system32\winlogon.exe. These files are in use and Avast can not repair, move, delete or do anything with them. How do I fix it? The desktop shows no shortcuts and no start menu, it only shows the desktop picture. I can get into the windows task manager and was able to find the restore and it worked OK until I rebooted and it all went south again. I am a first time user to any help forum. I could not see where else to look for help or a solution. I am using my own computer to research and get it fixed. We don't have the funds to take it into a shop for repairs. Please help. Thanks, Randy
