Windows XP System 32 infection removal problem

Hi,
I have a virus infection (Win32 Agent) in Windows XP System 32 folder at c:windowssystem32winNt.dll which will not allow me to delete to remove it.
My antivirus (AVG) removes the infection initially but everytimr you restart Windows it comes back.
Any ideas how I can safely remove the infection without messing up Windows??
Many Thanks

Download Spysweeper from webroot. They give a 14 day trial and it works great. I recommend paying the $30 and keeping the protection on your computer so it doesn't happen again.

Problem with windows xp


Sometimes it happens in windows XP that you are not able to open drives on your hard disk. When you double click on the drives icons or right click on the drive>>explore in My computer ,the drive does not open.

This problem is generally caused by most of the viruses which infect windows XP system. They block or restrict your access to any of the drives.

But don’t worry this is not a big trouble it can be fixed easily.

Fix:

Normally when a virus infects a windows system which causes a drive opening problem, it automatically creates a file named autorun.inf in the root directory of each drive.

This autorun.inf file is a read only ,hidden and a system file and the folder option is also disabled by the virus. This is deliberately done by the virus in order to protect itself. autorun.inf initiates all the activities that the virus performs when you try to open any drive.



Very simple . virus create some bad registry if you want to solve this problem then delet this registry


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion­\Explorer\MountPoints2


delete all drive from here
