I'm running a laptop on NT2000 Pro and it doesn't go past the log in stage. I think I've identified the problem as codbot-ab as there is a file called dfrgfat32 running at startup and using shedloads of memory. I've downloaded the recommended fix (Autostart) to another machine and then to a usb pendrive, but can't navigate to it. When starting in safe mode the dfrgfat is still running.
Thanks Charles. Unfortunately this is where I picked up on the Autorun fix. The problem comes at step 2. I start up in safe mode but still get a frozen screen after log in and Task Manager is still showing dfrgfat32 active.
Hence I can't navigate to the autorun file and zap the worm....
Sorry, I didn't realise you meant Autorun.. Have you tried ending the dfrgfat32 using Task Manager, then carrying on with the tutorial? If this is still unsuccessful, try following this instead. Charles
