hi guys, i just setup a new computer for my uncle, everything is new except the dvd-writer and the hdd... after setting up everything and winxp pro... problems starts to arise....
If I may give you a good advise... and since you've set this computer up very recently, I recommend you format and reinstall it again.
Reason is, this system is TERRIBLY infected and the damage it already caused can not always be repaired.
I don't know what happened, how this system got infected so fast. But keep in mind, when you format and install Windows, make sure your internet cable is unplugged. Before making connection with the internet, make sure you install an Antivirus and Firewall first and THEN make connection with the internet and update asap to XP SP2.
It would be a very bad idea to remove the malware from this system manually since we already know that the damage it already caused is HUGE. That's why another format and reinstall is the best, fastest and especially the safest solution.
