Hello install this program from here:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

And reboot after the install is done.
The program will kill the autorun file, when you boot again.

This is also the best free malware/trojan remover available !!!!

Install also a better free antivirus program like this:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-download

Please uninstall any old antivirus program, before you install
Microsoft Security Essentials.
Mse it`s not useing so much of the pc`s memory to operate.

Your windows version must be valid, to use Microsoft Security Essentials .

You might have to scan for virus, in failsafe mode by pressing F8, while the pc boots.

Good luck

Am looked out of all dur to trying to log onto my dds computer in another town


1. Your Dad's computer must have remote login enabled for you to get into it's file system. Generally, you must also have an administrator-level account (user name and password) on that computer.

2. If your Dad's computer is set up as a webserver, and you want to change the website remotely, then it would have to have a link for a site administrator login. This should be a secure (https) page.

Those things have to be set up at the computer by someone with administrator level access. If nobody knows the password for an administrator level account on that computer, there probably is not much that can be done other than to go to the computer and copy or e-mail whatever files are accessible. Some people sell "password unlocking" software, but I cannot vouch for its effectiveness, nor its security - if it contains a Trojan Horse it would make the computer open to whatever hacker installed the Trojan Horse.

On the other hand, if your Dad had a webpage set up on a web hosting service, you do not need access to your Dad's computer to get to it. If you don't have the administrator username or password for the page, you may be able to get the hosting service to provide you with access once you show your legal authority to do so. This also holds for e-mail accounts.

Trojan Horse Removal


A virus is program that has malicious content in it and replicates itself and a Trojan horse is program that will only work if the user executes it. Sometimes, a Trojan horse covers itself as a fake folder while in fact, it's an .exe file.
The good thing about Trojan horse is that it is not that hard to get rid of them. But the bad thing about Trojan horse is that it is a little bit difficult to find them.
Although, it does not corrupt files or delete data stored on your hard disk until you execute it. Once executed, it will allow the hackers to indentify your credit card number, social security number, bank account details or some other private information.
You can delete or remove the hidden Trojan horse with the help of antivirus software. Either, you can also try the manual process to delete it or you can follow these steps:
STEP 1 Open the System Information Utility (msinfo32.exe). You can find the System Information Utility by typing “msinfo32.exe” in ‘Run’. This program lists all the processes running on any Windows system, even those processes that are hidden from the task list. Now open your virus scanner and run the executable or .dll through it.
STEP 2 Open your antivirus software and run a virus scan. If you don't have a antivirus software installed, download AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5. And run a scan using it. After the scanning process is completed, delete the value that was detected from the registry (before doing this step, take a backup of the registry files):
A) Click ‘Start’ > ‘Run’.
B) Type "regedit".
C) Click "OK".
D) Go to the subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunServices
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices

E) Now delete any value from the right pane that was detected during the scan process.
F) Exit the Registry Editor.

HAL.DLL is missing or corrupted, xp doesn't boot


if it was running for more than 30 hours, it wasn't doing much. You can try copying hal.dll off of a known, good-working XP pc, and replace it with the one on your broken PC. It's better if you extract it from i386 folder but grabbing it from another pc should work fine.
