Regedit,msconfig,task list now you see-now you don't on my XP
Posted on 2004-09-17
I've seen this posting somewhere and I was also hit recently. For a week already, the computer suffered on this unknown virus. I've been working on it for hours and late nights. But somehow, it won;t go away.
I ran spybot,ad-aware and AV and still won't go away.
Here is my problem right now.
There is an entry in my Registry under current version/ run that won't go away even I delete it. It kept on coming back.
I downloaded process explorer and I went thru the files many nights.
I found out that what cause my Regedit and Msconfig not to show up was a file name zoomplayer.exe. If I delete this file using proces explorer, I was able to open the regedit. so I went and delete zoomplay.exe.
I went to start up programs but it is not there. I don;t know what fires this exe again...
If I reboot thie file again show up.
Can someone direct me how I can permanently deal with this problem?
