    I have been attacked by a virus.. cannot find its identity as all antiviruses fail to install or fail to detect.

    THE HISTORY:
    1> Once when I restarted my system I found that I cud not login into my administrator account. I got an error invalid function so the system went into the default mode.

    2> So i created another account.. copied all files into it. And deleted the other account. No I cud log in. I just tried making a simple virus chk bu quick heal.. it did not open itself.

    3> So i installed AVG6. Wen I try to run it I get a msg...Driver[Core] Not found winerr=2.

    4> So I installed NORTON2003. Wenever it loaded at startup it said that some virus has changed its configuration i need to restart to get back the original config. The same error comes u p at nxt boot

    5> Then.... I installed Kepersky, Panda, F-secure which failed to detect a virus, failed to start, failed to completely install respectively.


    SO FINALLY NO ANTIVIRUS WORKS!

    6> Wen I restarted my system my desktophad buzzed off.. only the background was on. Cud not do anything. This happens at every startup

    7> Nw i have to login only thro SAFE MODE!


    Pls help. Any good online scanned will help?

    Sir, U haven't specified what Operating system u r currently using... :?

    Anyway...

    Download the file (URL given below) :- (This file searches for 41 known and most destructive viruses) :evil:

    http://virusscan.securesynergyonline.com/vs2/bin/stinger.exe (~900 KB)
    in ur friend's system...Copy Stinger.exe from ur friend's hard disk to ur hard disk...

    Next, make sure u have an admin account...
    Log in to the safe mode using ur admin account...
    Close all the running tasks using Task Manager..

    Run Stinger.exe...Add all the drives to scan..
    Run the scan...Sit back relax...if u are lucky enough..it will remove all the traces of ur virus..

    P.S. :- Be sure to back up all ur files to ur friend's hard disk !!! :twisted:

    Trouble !

    Seems u have WinXp or 2000,
    If u still have the NAV2003 with u, and if its exe files are still there on ur Hard disk,

    start in command prompt and run the NAVAPW32.exe from nortons installed folder. hope it will work.

    get the virus defnition files and update it if u can
    ================

    Trend micro(PC-cillin) provides some scanner utility get it from
    http://www.trendmicro.com/download/dcs.asp. Read this b4 u get the file.
    flie link is http://www.trendmicro.com/ftp/products/tsc/sysclean.com
    readme from http://www.trendmicro.com/ftp/products/tsc/readme.txt
