Command Prompt window opens ans closes immediately, i think its a virus
Posted on 2006-04-25
Few days back my windows was running smoothly. I then received an email , in which there was a attached zip file.
The email body contained the message that your password has been changed successfully.I tried opening the zip file attached and there was a password.scr file in it. I think i clicked it as far as i can remember.So as a result now when i try
to open command prompt the windows opens for a second and closes.I have tried running it from start->run->cmd as well but no use. Also i have tried it running from start->accessories as wel but same problem.
Same is the problem with task manager ,regedit
and msconfig. Also my firewall was automatically disabled. I tried going to macafee website to find a solution and downlaoded the stinger application. Tried running it and it showed me that im infected with Qhost.apd trojan and it repiared the file as well. But i have ran the scan like 10 times every time it shows me and repairs it but the problem still persist. I have downlaoded Avg, Microsoft windows Beta Defender and other Anitviruses as well but no use.
Please help with this as anyone can take advantage of it as im not firewall protected at the moment and cant even open the anitvirus that was installed originally in my machine due to some reason that i dont know. The antivirus is Sygate that i was running but it appears to be disabled now.
Please help with this asap and get the 500 points you deserve if you can find a soultion for it.
