I HAVE AN EMACHINES W2040, WHICH I BOUGHT 2ND HAND. THE PC WAS SO INFECTED WITH VIRUSES, WHEN I GOT IT THAT I HAD TO USE MY EMACHINES BACK UP DISCS TO RESTORE WINDOWS XP IN WORKING ORDER. ONE PROBLEM THAT I HAD WHEN I FIRST GOT THE COMPUTER WAS THAT THE STANDBY OPTION WHEN YOU GO TO CUT OFF THE PC WAS NO LONGER THERE, OR IT WAS FADED LIKE. WELL ALL THIS WAS ABOUT 7 MONTHS AGO. WELL MY ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE EXPIRED AND I INSTALLED A NEW ONE AND WHEN I DID A FULL SCAN IT PICKED UP 10 VIRUSES INCLUDING TWO WITH THE SAME NAME, CALLED, MSCLOCK32.DLL, WHICH I NOTICED WAS THE SAME VIRUS THAT I HAD ON HERE BEFORE, WELL NORTON DELETED THE VIRUSES, AND I DELETED THE BACK UPS OF THEM, NOW THE STANDBY OPTION IS NOT WORKING AGAIN. I HATE TO HAVE TO USE THE BACK UP DISCS AGAIN AND WIPE EVERYTHING OFF HERE, SO COULD SOMEONE OUT THERE GIVE ME SOME ADVISE ON WHAT TO DO?

Loss of the Stand-By facility (greyed out) can sometimes be caused by problems with the display driver.
Suggest you check event viewer.
Suggest you post a Hijack This log since the same malware keeps showing up. I wouldn't rely on one antivirus to completely remove the malware.
Post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This Forum by following the directions in the link below. DO NOT post the log in this forum.
