Okay. Start you pc, go to Start, Run, key in msconfig, go to startup, disable all start items, reboot. If you can get to the internet once you reboot then download and run Malwarebytes. That should get you going. If you can't get to the internet open your browser, go to Tools, Internet Options,Connections, Lan Settings, and make sure nothing is checked in the Proxy settings. There's more to do, but that will get you to a point where you can function. Make sure you invest in a good antivirus scanner.

    Never manually remove registry values unless you are positive you know what you are doing. You can cause more problems that can't be corrected.



    Manually removing the files and folders won't clear out the virus. This particular one has a file that will reinstall itself every time you reboot. Removing the Antivirus 360 folder is a waste of time.

How to prevent you system from virus?


1. Setup Windows for automatic updating. 2. Get a security suite that has occasional updating (i.e. MS Security Essential, MS firewall, MS Defender, Adblock, etc). 3. Get broadband internet connection so that you will have a better internet experience while it's updating in the background. 4. Use a more secured internet browser (such as Google Chrome with many security extensions like WOT and SiteAdvisor). 5. Don't download ****, know where you going, and what you're doing.

Virus disabled my sound and I can't download any anti virus softw


You Better Format your Drive if not possible then plug it on some other PC (Which got the AntiVirus, with Latest Updates ).
Scan it then, make it clean and go on.
But if your Machine is totally messed up then it will be very difficult for you make it absolutely error free, so the best is to begin again with the antivirus, and keep the Virus Updated.

The SAM hive is the security function of Windows XP. I am surprised that you can boot to Windows at all. From your description, it sounds like you have a virus infection.

Since you cannot access the internet or run any programs, it may be simpler to just try to re-image the system.

If your system is a Dell 4600 it should be equipped with PC Restore (At boot, just after the Dell screen, you should have a black screen with a blue bar across the top for about 1 second) when that screen appears, press CNTL+F11 and you should be able to re-image your system. (This will wipe out all data, but should get the viruses too)

If that fails, or you don't have a Dell, the boot to your XP CD and reformat the HDD and install a clean copy of XP
