Please help! My wife's computer, an older HP P4 machine running Windows XP with SP3, seems to have come down with Crypt.aqlw. At least that's what AVG reports. Besides running the standard free AVG scan, I haven't tried anything heroic yet. Could someone please help me to get rid of this?

PS. She uses AOL. I don't know if that information helps or not. I just figured I'd throw it out there.

I decided to take the easy way out and just do a low level format and re-install Windows. The computer freezes after only being turned on for 5 minutes or so. There's no way it would allow me to download and run the programs necessary to diagnose and correct the problem. Thanks!

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
