Why do I get this 1015 error when I'm about to install something on a terminal server?

I'm getting this error on a windows 2000 Terminal Server with SP4.  I think It may have been caused by a virus.  I think I have cleaned most of the virus that was giving me services "c", "CCProxy" and "Network Mapping".   It also made a new directory c:\windows\system32\ and c:\windows\ny\ which had the program CCProxy.   (The real windows directory is c:\WINNT\)

I backed up the registry and searched for anything refenceing c:\windows\ and deleted them.  I'm trying to get the services back in order but I am running into problems with this one.

I'm not sure what to try from here.

This is the warning I get:

Hiya,

First thing to do having looked at the results.....

Go to http://www.superantispyware.com and download the free tool, install it and update it.

Then run a scan and remove the nasties that you've got sitting on your PC

Boot your PC in to safe mode and run the same scan again 3 times.

The 2nd or 3rd time should report nothing found.

Boot back into Windows and then run Hijackthis again and post the file back here

Once you're back into windows try updating symantec again

Let me know how you get on

I know it's a ball ache, but I'm afraid it's got to be done

Thanks
Si
