I've been clearing up my boyfriend's computer and have come across a number of problems that I hope you can help with.
The first problem I came across is c:\windows\system32\mstsdsc.exe
I came across this in the start up program list and turned it off. Every time I reboot the computer it has switched itself back on and has tried to access the internet (but I have blocked it).
After reading that mstsdsc.exe is a virus I decided to run an virus scan. It found three viruses:
I moved the files associated with Netheif to the chest and that wasn't a problem as it wasn't in system folder. However, the file with the Small-EKE is in the system folder at: c:\windows\system32\tmwsock.dll
And Win32:Cimuz-AF is at c:\windows\system32\mstsdsc.exe
This is probably my boyfriend's fault because he tells me his anti-virus subscription ran out months ago.
I have installed Zone Alarm and Avast.
Any advice on how to fix these problems would be much appreciated.
His OS Windows XP SP2
