First, start your pc and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 key. This will bring up a boot option list. Try the option " Last known good configuration". If your pc boots up all the way, do a syatem restore.Try to think of when you got the virus. Pick a day about two days before that for your restore. Go to Start> Programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Do the restore. This should get you fixed up. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate yet, just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to help you further. Thanks. Let me know what happens.

W32/blaster worm, how to unlock frozen screen


repeatedly press f8 after youve pushed the power button. this will start your pc in safe mode. click the start menu and in the run box type ( msconfig ) only using the letters m,s,c,o,n,f,i,g. then select the startup tab located at the top center of the popup screen. you will then see a list of items with a check mark located next to each of them or just some of them. unchech each one and then hit apply. you will then be prompted to restart your system. let it startup normally. you will get a prompt telling you your system has been changed to a selective startup. just check the box and choose it not to prompt you again. this should allow you to boot up and use your anti virus program to remove the virus threat.

you will no longer see some of the icons in the lower right hand corner of your screen as a result of unchecking those items, but they will still function properly without any issues.

below , i have included a link that will provide you with a w32/blaster worm removal tool. download the program to your desktopp the doublle click the icon to run the tool. this wiull be extremely helpfull if your AV software is out of date or already corrupted by the worm itself. a blaster worm has the potential to completely disable your current AV program, so id for sure try it first as a definate removal result.

if you need any further assistance in helping you with this , please feel free to contact me via billfox1966@yahoo.com

System has a virus mbr invected by bloodhpund.mbr how do I delete this. I purchased Norton 2010 but it won't remopve the problem says it needs to be installed but can't get into system to install.


You're Acer probably has Rescue and Recovery™ installed. Rescue and Recovery is a suite of self-recovery tools to help you diagnose, get help, and recover your system.

When you set the Bloodhound heuristics in Norton AntiVirus to it's highest setting you probably ran a virus scan and saw a Norton AntiVirus alert that states that it's detected a potential threat, Bloodhound.MBR. But this is probably not a virus but the recovery software on your laptop.

Solution:

If you have IBM Rescue and Recovery and Norton AntiVirus Bloodhound heuristics are configured to the highest setting, Norton AntiVirus may alert you with a Bloodhound.MBR detection when you run a virus scan. To avoid this, configure your Bloodhound heuristics to the default setting.

To reset Bloodhound to the default setting
  1. Start Norton AntiVirus.
    If Norton AntiVirus was installed as part of Norton Internet Security or Norton SystemWorks, then start one of those programs.
  2. Click Options.
    If you see a submenu, then click Norton AntiVirus.
  3. Click Auto-Protect.
  4. Click Bloodhound.
  5. Click Default level of protection (recommended).
  6. Click OK
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 for Manual Scan.
    In step 3, substitute Manual Scan for Auto-Protect.
  8. Exit Norton AntiVirus.

Recycler folder virus


You don't have a virus, you have the folders without an executeable link. Use windows explorer to delete the files you want to get rid of.

Virus infecting microsoft programs


Its the W32/Rungbu-A virus, it infects Microsoft Word DOC files by copying itself to the same filename but with an .SCR extension, appending the DOC file to the SCR copy, and then hiding the original DOC file.

The W32/Rungbu-A then sets the computer not to show hidden files (in order to hide the DOC file), to give SCR files a Word icon (so the SCR file looks like a Word file), and to hide file extensions (so the SCR file just displays the filename, not the SCR extension). When the SCR file is run, the Word document is displayed as normal.

To recover your .DOC files just follow these steps:

You have to delete all files detected as W32/Rungbu-A.

Set the following registry entries in order to show extensions and hidden files:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
HideFileExt
0


HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\HideFileExt
UncheckedValue
0

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
ShowSuperHidden
1


HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\SuperHidden
UncheckedValue
1


You must change the attributes of the original .DOC files to stop them being hidden.

My answer to your second question, is in November of 2007 the .SCR file extension started to be used to transmit a Trojan. As a script or a screen saver this file can execute other files which carry the Trojan. The SCR file may be embedded within a ZIP file which could also contain a file with a double extension. Many Windows screen savers come with a .SCR extension by default. Usually these will be found in the Windows main directory. Use caution if you receive a screen saver file via E-mail. These files can contain executable code and can be worms or viruses. Note: This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension.
