You probably have a virus, see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...ory/912840.mspx and http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcen...tent/16074.html

Next Tuesday seems to be the date that Microsoft is set to release an update, in the mean time it seems that there is some major vulnerabilities.

Though Microsof says its beta of OneCare will help: http://www.windowsonecare.com/

You're almost on the other side of the World from me, so please forgive the late hour...

If you have a Broadband connection:
Boot to Safe Mode With Networking, jump onto Microsoft.com then. Then you can download the Fix. Also, you should be able to find and run a free online virus scan, such as Ewido.net. It's a start...

How to start Windows in Safe Mode

As Lazarus Long suggested, you should run a couple of online virus scans.
Although ewido is a good program, it's not an antivirus.

Run these online virus scanners:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Also this online Trojan scanner:
TrojanScan
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, CPU: Phenom II X4 955 Deneb BE, HS/F: CoolerMaster V8, RAM: 2 x 1G Kingston HyperX DDR2 800, VGA: ECS GeForce Black GTX 560, PSU: Antec TruePower Modular 750W, Soundcard: Asus Xonar D1, Case: CoolerMaster COSMOS 1000, Storage: Internal - 2 x Seagate 250GB SATA, 2 x WD 1TB SATA; External - Seagate 500GB USB, WD 640GB eSATA, 3 x WD 1TB eSATA

You appear to have been affected by the latest .wmf exploit that Microsoft just issued a patch for today.

You will either have to get a scan done for this particular virus, or you will have to reformat your computer and reinstall Windows.

If you can't get on the internet, your options are limited.

From one of the posts that I read (I lost the URL):

The way you get rid of it is to reboot in safe mode, kill the temp files (all of them) in your profile, run spybot, and if i remember correctly it has 2 entry's you have to kill under msconfig.


Also, read this: http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/ar...5.html#00000753

I'd suggest finding a knowlegable friend who can help you get a floppy based antivirus scanner that can run on your system. Then run it to get rid of this bugger!

Otherwise, you're left with a format and reinstall (and don't forget to patch for this vulnerability when you're done! )
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
