I use Windows XP Pro.
It started when some one was using my computer to check their email and they notices that I had an active desktop. It was the "Tesla Plus" virus warning and had some links on it. They opened the link an it opened a window for the web site, they did not download anything from it. They then restarted the computer hoping that it would get rid of the "Tesla Plus" desktop.
After restarting an error message occurred after the log in during the time explorer would load. I think it was something about failure to load explorer.exe. After I found out about this I tried to run AVG anti-virus to find out what was wrong. The AVG found 25 Trojan Horse files and 4 other virus files. I had them either healed or quarantined. After that, computer started to act even worse.
I think some of the files that were quarantined were .dll files and I was missing my winInet.dll file and it would give an error message after most programs that I tried to open, saying that it was missing or something, and then the application would go ahead and open and work fine without it (At this time Winamp worked still). I then downloaded the winInet.dll from a .dll website and that error message went away. After I put the new .dll file in my winamp, windows media player, AIM, and others do no work.
As for the current status of my computer. explorer.exe tries to load on start up and shows the bottom task bar for about 5 seconds, no desktop icons, and then it vanishes. Winamp and windows media player open for about 2 seconds also and then close. I receive an error on the login screen if I wait for it and later if I log in and load really fast. The message is [svchost.exe - application error The instruction at "0x7c81ac9b" referenced memory at "0x800401109". The memory could not be "read".] Also my google desktop gives a error for an unexpected quit after about 30 seconds of loading. Right now I can use the internet on my computer and play warcraft 3 but that is about it.
I think that is all of it. I hope that some one can help me soon.
