I think i have a VIRU5
Posted on 2003-11-08
Hi, i have a serious problem with my windows XP pro, i am pretty sure it is a virus, in fact i know it is a virus anyway this is what happens.
The nortan antivirus will not work, and not only will it not work but if you even try to right-click on the folder it is in it and go to propertes
it will just close the window,
also i can not press alt-ctrl-del because that window just flashes up on the screen for not even a second then closes, a few games will get to a certian point
then shut down, but i think i know what is causing it, today i was trying to find a support group on the net ant i typed in something like
"windows xp pro virus help" and the internet window closed, then i loaded it again and just typed in "virus" and it closed again, then when i got
on to a windows help site i clicked on a virus help icon and it closed again, its like a virus thats scared of its name lol. anyway i restarted my pc into
safe mode and everything worked fine i even scanned the hard drive for viruses, but the weired theing is that the virus checker forlder is only 17mg
and when i installed it it was about 70, so i think something is deffenately wrong there, anyway it came up with no viruses whick i know was wrong, it
must have infected the virus checker or something, i tryed to install others and they just dont load, its something about the word "virus" that sets it off.
Anyway i hope you can get back to me if you have had any simular incidents because its either get rid of it or format the hard drive (again).
Many thanks, tom.
