Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
I have never seen a virus like this before...
i recently installed microsoft windows xp professional (SP1) onto a newly built computer. i caught a virus before i was able to download an antivirus / firewall and it behaves in a very odd manner.
i was able to install spyware doctor and zonalarm security suite (firewall + antivirus) AFTER i got the virus.
i done the most thoroughest scan on both, zonealarm picked up alot of trogans, backdoor things. and spyware doctor found a program called "braviax.exe"
as far as i knew, all the viruses was deleted, until i reset my computer this was.
the next morning i turned my computer on and i now find my belkin wireless usb adapter "cannot be found" although it hasnt been touched. it isnt even shown in device manager. nothing disabled, usb registry number is still '3'
also, zonealarm about .. every 10 seconds finds another backdoor virus. it must be duplicating.
so this virus is getting smart .. so i decide copy an installer of F-Secure antivirus onto my memory stick. i have previously used this to install it onto my laptop (it consists of "virus & spy protection", "internet shield" and "spam control"
i installed it onto my computer and it tells me it cannot be installed if zonealarm security suite is installed, so i uninstall it. then i install F-Secure.
after i install F-Secure antivirus, it requests i restart. so i restart and come to find my usb memory stick now doesnt work! it blinks a light when i plug it in, but it isnt displayed in my computer or device manager and nothing comes up to install it.
F-secure loads up after booting and it doesnt show no antivirus searching options unlike my laptop, now i have a firewall, but no antvirus. the virus has done this ??
so now the backdoor virus is left duplicating as we speak and i have NO controll of it. no internet access to any antivirus software, and no usb stick to copy a antivirus over to it.
WHAT THE [HELL] DO I DO?
this is a virus ive never experienced before . seems like its alive ..
need fast support, my computer is dying lol. offering good feedback? ha :)
:)) Use DiskManager2000 (DM2000) by Floppy and Format the HD, reinstall Windows and enjoy. I been sufferd such viruses before and they left no option for me format the HD with SeaGate software DM2000. Good luck. :D
