You almost NEVER have to completely format a hard drive to remove a virus.

If you can get into safe mode run a system restore to before the infection, if you can't boot into safe mode then you'll need to get on another computer that can access the internet and download HITMANPRO. Their site explains how to make a USB stick with KICKSTARTER so you can boot from that and it will allow you to remove the bug(s)

Hope that helps.

(You may have to completely format the hard drive.)
Reboot while hitting F8 key to boot in safe mode. If that works, attempt to go online. If you can access the internet, download a malware program such as Malware Bytes, install and run the program.

Where can I recover my ms office 2003?


If indeed your computer is infected with the Win32/Sality, it's considered very destructive. If you haven't done so yet, disconnect your computer from any and all networks and stay off the internet. Until you purchase a good anti-virus softare and run it on the PC, nothing can be foxed or restored and it may actually get worse. That should be your highest priority.

More than likely you will have to reinstall your MS Office Suite again because the executables are probably gone.

I'm really sorry to see you have to go through this!

Security Problem Message on PC


You have a spyware infection, plan and simple. Those security warnings (asking you to scan) are not part of the Windows security center.

Download Spybot [ http://www.spybot.com ] for free, scan your system and pray that the spyware has not done irreparable damage to your system files.
