When I try and access "MY Computer", try and open up "my documents", or even try and open "My Network Places. The computer system will not allow me to open these items and the screen will refresh and "kick me" off the internet (if connected). Also I am not able to open up the "control panel". It acts as though there is a trojan or worm but when I do a virus scan and use "The Cleaner) the system is unable to find any trojan horses or viruses. ANy ideas?

I currently have Spybot-S &D no luck finding anything. The first web site is unavailable. Is there a certain program you would like me to try?

Hey Manch03,

  This question was answered on 4/1/2004 I can' t figure why the link is unavailable now.

The site for the WORM_AGOBOT is
http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/default5.asp?VName=WORM_AGOBOT.DU
or
http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/default5.asp?VName=WORM_AGOBOT.JP

There are many variants for these and the names for the process may differ from
what is listed since mine was MSclock.exe.  As for Spybot, I tried Norton Antivirus, Mcaffre Virus
Scanner, Stinger, Ad-aware 6, spybot, all updated and with update definitions and none of them detected this worm.

At this point I have tried just about everything. The Stinger could not find any viruses or trojans. Ad-Ware found 16 objects and deleted them. Most of the on-line virus scanners were not available because I do not have access to Internet Explorer (will not open) so I have to use Netscape. Most sites (Anti-Virus) are prompting me to use Internet Explorer. I will proceed with the next two suggustions from "fatel Exception" and "Worked4me". NO solution yet. Any more suggustions?
