Hi Guys,

My other laptop was attacked by a w32/blaster.worm virus.
I can log on and I get my desktop but after that I cannot open anything.

In the bottom right corner I have the following message:

tfswctrl.exe cannot start
tfswctrl.exe is infected by w32/blaster.worm

Is it possible to fix this? Don't know much about computers.

Thanks in advance

Hello nazza and welcome to Bleeping Computer! :welcome:

Avira AntiVir Rescue System is a Linux-based application that allows accessing computers that cannot be booted anymore.
  • Download The Avira AntiVir Rescue System from here.
  • Just double-click on the rescue system package to burn it to a CD/DVD.
  • Then please use that CD/DVD with Avira Rescue System to boot your computer.
At the boot option please press the number 1 on your keyboard to 1 Boot AntiVir Rescue System (default) and press Enter or just wait.

You will then see the graphical interface of Rescue CD loading modules and mounting devices. The default language is German, but you can change it to English anytime by clicking on the English flag on the lower-left side of the screen.

Under Configuration, please select Scan all files, Try to repair infected files and Rename files if they cannot be removed?.

Then please go back to Virus scanner and click Start scanneren.

The Avira AntiVir Rescue System wil now

Please let me know if after running that, you are able to open things now. We will still have more to do, but we need to get your computer in a workable state first. :)
