Is this behaviour virus related.!!!
Posted on 2004-04-22
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.
