Seems I've got a bug. Hubby reported yesterday that his account was acting strange -- would not allow him to open any programs. We run Windows XP Professional on our home computer.
I ran a scan with MS Security Essentials. It found nothing amiss.
Then I ran a full scan with Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner. It found three severe threats, one of which I was able to rid us of today. His account now seems to work fine -- programs open, he can get online, etc. BUT, I ran the OneCare scan again this evening, and it found the same two threats. For some reason, OneCare can not clean them up, and offers no suggestions.
Here is all the info the OneCare gave me:
located in C:\documents and settings\hubby\my documents\downloads\hallmark.exe (rarsfx)\run.bat
located in C:\documents and settings\hubby\my documents\downloads\hallmark.exe (rarsfx)a.reg\(utf-161e)
Any help you could give about how to go about removing these bits of nastiness would be very much appreciated.
I am grateful for your expertise.
