Kinds of computer virus


from your question, what are the kinds of computer viruses, here is the detailed explanation:

Computermag-glass_10x10.gif viruses are generally defined as a program inputted into a computer that allows replication of the program installed. As it replicates, the program intentionally infects the computer, typically without even the user knowing about the damage being done. A virus, unlike worms or Trojan horses, needs an aid to transfer them to computers. Viruses usually take a large amount of computer memory, resulting into system crashes. Viruses are categorized to several parts based on its features.
Macro Viruses A macro virus, often scripted into common application programs such as Word or Excel, is spread by infecting documents. Macro viruses are known to be platform-independent since the virus itself are written in language of the application and not the messagebox_info.png operating system. When the application is running, this allows the macro virus to spread amongst the operating systemsmag-glass_10x10.gif. There are thousands of macro viruses that exists, and each are considered major threats. Examples of these viruses are: Melissa.A and Bablas. pc.
Network Viruses Network viruses rapidly spreads through a Local Network Area ( messagebox_info.png LAN), and sometimes throughout the internet. Generally, network viruses multiply through shared resources, i.e., shared drives and folders. When the virus infects a computer, it searches through the network to attack its new potential prey. When the virus finishes infecting that computer, it moves on to the next and the cycle repeats itself. The most dangerous network viruses are Nimda and SQLSlammer.
Logic Bombs The messagebox_info.png logic bomb virus is a piece of code that are inputted into a software system. When a certain and specific condition is met, such as clicking on an internet browser or opening a particular file, the logic bomb virus is set off. Many programmers set the malicious virus off during days such as April Fools Day or Friday the 13th. When the virus is activated, then various activities will take place. For example, files are permanently deleted.
Companion Viruses Companion viruses takes advantage of MS- messagebox_info.png DOS. This virus creates a new file with typically the messagebox_info.png .COM extensions, but sometimes the .EXD extension as well. When a user manually types in a program they desire without adding .EXE or any other specific extention, DOS will make the assumption that the user want the file with the extension that comes first in alphabetical order, and thus running the virus. The companion virus is rare among Windows XP computers as this particular operating system does not use the MS-DOS.
Boot Sector Viruses messagebox_info.png Boot sector viruses generally hide in the boot sector, either in the bootable disk or the messagebox_info.png hard drive. Unlike most viruses, this virus does not harm the files in the hard disk, but harm the hard disk itself. Boot sector viruses are uncommon at this day and age because these viruses are spread rapidly by floppy disks and not on CD-ROMs.
Multipartite Viruses Multipartite viruses are spreaded through infected media and usually hides in the memory. Gradually, the virus moves to the boot sector of the hard drive and infects executable files on the hard drive and later across the computer system

I uninstall the Anti-virus on my PC hoping to reinstalled it back and all i get is this spyware taking all over my PC.. I cannot access any files on my PC anymore. I get a message like this...


I think you have double clicked on a file which was generated by a Worm. Its quite a long process to describe and needs some knowledge to manually remove the Viruses. I recommend you to download one of these products. Bitdefender - Trial would be enough. Dr.Web Standalone - CureIt.
Both are perfect solutions. Trusted and Verified Personally.
Bitdefender Dr.Web
Download and Install Bitdefender and let the Automatic update to continue. Do the pre-virus scan before install. It will prompt you! Don't use the key if you plan to update Automatically. You can use it for 30 days.
Dr.Web doesn't require an installation. Just run and it will do the rest.
Deleted your Local Settings\Temp folder in your User Profile (Unhide the hidden folders before proceed. However it might be disabled already).
Clean your Web Browser cache and temporary internet files as well, using the Internet Options.
When you are prompted you can delete or Quarantine the files. If there are only Viruses except infected System Files, choose Delete option.
Please be kind enough to Rate the answer if you feel that it helped you to solve the issue! If you need further help, please feel free to ask.
Thanks for using Fixya!

My computer where infected with virus please help me to remove it


There may be another alternative.

You can remove the infected hard drive and use another computer to put it into as a slave/secondary drive.

You can then try to "Clean" the infections via this computers antivirus and malware cleaners. Check the Gizmo site for some really great advice and loads of programs that can help you.

Make sure this other computer's security is up to date first.

AUTORUN.EXE & RECYCLE VIRUS


You need to do a low level format on the pen drive and the system drive. I have found by using programs like kill disk is the best way to get rid of a worm virus. A regurlar format will not work, unlike what they say to you. Kill disk will stop all running prorgrams on the drive. What it does it rights zero to the pen the drive. After that you need to do the same to your system drive. Otherwise you will be back to square one.

Something is changing icons shape and left double click does work


It seems like a worm more or less a along vir detail below - you wlll have to scan and remove it using a good antivirus program:
Virus Profile: W32/Xiaoho.worm Name: W32/Xiaoho.worm Risk Assessment - Home Users: Low-Profiled - Corporate Users: Low-Profiled Date Discovered: 8/1/2007 Date Added: 8/1/2007 Origin: N/A Length: Varies Type: Virus SubType: Worm DAT Required: 5088
Virus Characteristics -- Update August 18, 2007 --
The risk assessment of this threat has been updated to Low-Profiled due to media attention at:
http://shanghaiist.com/2007/08/17/vicious_new_chi.php
To receive an extra.dat file for this threat please visit: https://www.webimmune.net/extra/getextra.aspx
This detection is for a worm which tries to copy itself to removable drives. It will destroy systems it's used on by infecting all .exe files and changing their icons to the Chinese character HAO.
Upon execution, the worm drops a copy of itself into the Windows System folder:
  • %SysDir%\exloroe.exe
The worm creates the following registry keys to activate itself:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{H9I12RB03-AB-B70-7-11d2-9CBD-0O00FS7AH6-9E2121BHJLK}\: "ïµí³éèöã"
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{H9I12RB03-AB-B70-7-11d2-9CBD-0O00FS7AH6-9E2121BHJLK}\stubpath: "%SystemRoot%\system32\exloroe.exe"
It spreads by dropping files named autorun.inf and xiaohao.exe on removable drives and setting file attributes as hidden.
The worm infects .exe files by overwriting them or corrupting them beyond repair. This changes their icon to Chinese word HAO.
