Hi, I posted on this board when i had spyware infected on my computer and you guys helped me. I was wondering if I could help again.

For the last few days i have been recieving a pop-up saying " NvVid.exe- No disk found" or something like that. I was wondering if anyone could help. It just randomly pops up at various times.

I am running windows xp.

According Prevx1 that may be a virus. They also claim to be able to remove it for free.

Blacklight also shows NvVid.exe as rootkit related so there probably are other files that need to be identified and dealt with.

You may need expert assistance with removing this. If you would like help, please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. Please be patient. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted and any modifications you make may complicate the malware removal process.
