Is this behaviour virus related.!!!

I have windows 2000 professional installed on my computer.

I have the following service packs installed

1) Service Pack 4.
2) Servie Pack for Internet Exploer 6.0.

I have been experience a strange behaviour for the past few days. when I start windows everything seems ok. when i connect to the interent after after few minutes, I observe the following behaviours.

1) Copy paste in any application wont work. For eg. in Widows explorer i Can copy but cannot paste
2) in Internet Explorer I cannot do the following
  a) I cannot copy paste anything. (eg. shortcuts etc)
  b) I cannot display the serach dialog box
 c) I cannot open any new windows by clicking on any shortcuts.
3) When I access control panel, all the icons are on the left hand side lined up on below the other. and when i access for eg. add remove program, i see a blank window with noting in it.


Three times after this I reparied windows sytem files just thinking it might be some system file corrpution.

i have also scanned my computer with the latest virus scanner but it couldnt find anything..


If i restart window, everything starts working fine. but when i connect to internet, this strange behaviour starts again!!!

I have only yahoo messenger and sql server installed on my computer.

Could any one there tell me whats happeing.. Is this a virus ..this has ghosted me for last three days!!

thanks for all your kindness.

Check the full compiled list of tools to use: http:Q_20945897.html
  Web Shredder may be what you need tho--> http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/cwschronicles.html#cwshredder
  And/or post the log from   HijackThis -->  http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

  Make sure that after downloading these, that you update them.  It helps to try at least two of these.

Hi tppradeep18,

Just to be sure...
Run stinger, as some of the behaviour you described does indicate some virusinfection.
