It sounds bad, lol, here is wht you should do, go over to the AVG site, http://www.avg.com/, get either the free version or a trial on the home version, they have a version 8 that works great and is free, download it, then run your machine in safe mode, run the avg in safe mode and let it run it's course. if the program is a virus or trogen, it will be removed, safe mose is tap the f8 key as the machine starts into boot mode, tap, don't hold it down just tap it like a piano key, Good Luck

Start up gets to "Loading PBR for descriptor 2... done"


I suspect that the viruses had infected some of the files that windows needed to boot up. The moment you ran the Mcafee, the scanning might have deleted or quarantined those files. That is the reason you're having this Loading PBR message because it is now trying to boot from the network and not from the hard drive. You will need to repair windows using the CDs that came with the computer (the Operating system CD/DVD) and run CHKDSK /R at the screen where it says 'repair your computer using the command prompt". If this does not work, chances are, you may need to reinstall windows and everything and that all information in your hard drive will be wiped out.

Download the program "Revo Uninstaller" from www.download.com it is a free program that searches out every little nit of a programs existance and snuffs it out. One of the best programs I've seen for uninstalling retail garbage. When you install it and run it. It will give you a listing of all programs currently on the machine, highlight the one you want to get rid of and click on uninstall. Choose option (4), this will search the registry and get rid of everything. The original programs uninstaller will run first, let it do its thing even if it fails, hit ok and Revo will take over from there. Do not let the original program reboot, click no and continue with the Revo program. Click yes to get rid of everything each time you are asked. When it is finished it will tell you.

Killwind.exe was found by McAfee. Dangerous? What now? Potentially harmful or benign? Bob Robey


Welcome to the world of useless HP resident exe files.
The only problem with that file is so many anti-virus softwares treat it as totally evil and there by gives you no end of grief. If you have no anti-virus software then it doesn't conflict with anything. But when you go to protect your HP product...problems occur. You would think that something that is designed to kill windows Terminate and Stay Resident programs (TSR that have no visual clue they are running in the background of the system) is a good thing until everything conflicts with it.

If you do not eliminate killwind MacAfee will continue to give problems.
