Important windows just close as soon as they open ie: Regedit, Msconfig, Avg update
Posted on 2005-03-26
Hi all - Well another problem arises. My friend has just purchased a new PC (1 week old) and he has just started to develop problems. I ran three types of anti virus/malware solutions namely AVG,Ad-Aware and Spybot. They all picked something up and they auto repaired everything. Trouble is everything seems fine but when I go to check what processes run at startup (msconfig) the window opens for a split second then closes and its the same for regedit and also I noticed that once I downloaded the latest definitions for AVG when it went to update the database this didn't occur even after I visually watched the total file download. I know I have a virus as there was no anti virus software activated and the XP firewall was deactivated :-( when I got here. I just cant track it. Also when online I notice a lot of activity and the browser is idol. When I do ctrl,alt,delete again the window opens for a split second and disappears. Please advise on what I can try as it's starting to annoy me big time. Thanks in advance.
