I was apparently attacked by a virus on 6/6/2013. Drivers throughout my company began to malfunction. By the next day, every PC in our organization had startup repair issues as they were rebooted. It took only three days to bring down every server as they were rebooted over the weekend. Our backup server will not boot. I cannot find any virus definitions for our situation. Has anyone else encountered our nightmare??

It sound more like a service pack install, windows update? Do you use a management software like kaseya, kace , landesk?

Did you change the GPO?

Did you take one of the machines offline and check for virus? I recommend a flash drive program like hitman pro.

Actually, our virus protection vendor (VIPRE) discovered that someone had set up our antivirus to blacklist our sys32 folder. So it was removing this folder and wrecking havoc afterward. We are working now to retrieve the sys32 files out of quarantine on each server and desktop. They are encrypted so it is difficult. Thanks!
