Question about Computers & Internet
Sorry to be so negative, but I'm 99.9% certain that it will have corrupted too many of your system files. It also hides it self on the back of as many .exe and .scr files as possible. So as soon as you load any one of them, the virus re-establishes itself.As I found to my cost it also corrupts .exe files on all your hard drives - I run 3 internal and 2 external The latter weren't switched fortunately. Frankly there is no alternative - save your data in safe mode, which still appears to work OK to a separate external drive which has NO .exe or .scr files. Then format and re-install. That was draconian - but it worked.
Sorry, H. :((
Some viruses are still busy at work even though you have done a clean install. Formatting just removes the ability for windows to read the files. Always best when you have nasties like that to use www.dban.org and wipe 1st then do a new install. It does make a diffrence!!
