I have win xp s2 and it has what seems to have a hex virus. when windows/temp is accessed it starts counting from 0000000.tmp and ends when it reaches fffffff.tmp. it counts sequencially. It takes hours to finally reach the end. I have tried a number of removers and nothing has deleted it or found the parent program.I am running CyberKiko DeleteMe right now and it has been running for 5 hours and is at 23915a2. Has anyone had this problem ? Joe by the way this on a Dell computer

Re: delete hex virus
If it truly is a virus I suggest you first look for and purchase CA(Computer Associates) Internet Security Suite 2008 and run the Anti-Virus to check for viruses.
Second I would then make absolutly sure that those files are indeed not being used [Try to delete one; does it let you?]
If it does I would then go into the command prompt by this method.
Start > Run > cmd.exe
then type this command[Note unless you are positively sure those files arent important and they are taking up alot of space I would not use this command. If the above is true execute this command:
Again please make sure these files are not important lest you mess up your pc with that command!

Yes they can because they are TeMPorary files. Any files that say *.TMP can be errased. Use tune up utlilities from http://www.tuneup.com to download and use to delete unwanted temp files. Take care :)
no not really, if you can boot into a dos window or eaven safemode, this issuposed to still be possable. go ahead and type path then press the enter key
now your system will probably say path=c:\;c:\windows;c:\windows\system32\ and so on, this is normal. and means that the path is set properly. a quick right lcik on your my computer usualy located on the desktop but may be in the start menu will bring up the properties menue option, go to the Advaned Tab on the bottom youll se Enviroment Valiables click this button varify this is their at least
Under System Variables Only path=%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot% ComSpec=%SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe OS=Windows_NT TEMP=%SystemRoot%\TEMP TMP=%SystemRoot%\TEMP windir=%SystemRoot%
thease are the defults used by windows xp by the way the win_nt is a windows nt file system used for xp. this suld get you back up and running agian.
regsvr.exe is a trojan virus. which slow ur system and affected ur data. its show that its running ur boot system. for remove it plz reinstall ur win xp and then install a antivirus from saving virus. thanks
yes, seems like there is virus going on your system. Go task manager and see which program is consuming more memory, if you kill that program it will work fine. But now you have to run antivirus and get the virus removed.
You could have a virus or trojan in your temp files, start your pc in safe mode, usually tap f8 when starting, try to run internet options and delete all temp and cookies. I would go to AVIRA and run there online anti-virus scanner. they are the top anti-virus software on the planet,next is Kaspersky then Eset Nod 32.
Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk
drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart
the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the
computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to
start the Recovery Console.
If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select
the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator
password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following
lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line:
md tmp copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak
and download process explorer.
Start it, and use the 'target' icon (to the right of the binoculars)
and 'drag' the icon to the command-box like window.
Then process explorer will tell you which program or process is causing this window to appear.
Find this program or process in windows file explorer and delete it.
Also download autoruns, a program that shows ALL autostarting programs, much better than win 98's msconfig
