    If you are sure that its a virus, try scanning it with an Antivirus ...
    I use NOD32 with Win2k3 and can safely say that its one of the best :cool:

    What firewall you use @Suhasingale? If not install ZoneAlarm firewall. It's the best one.
    That will keep things safe from hackers. It maybe a virus also. Windows O.S with all
    patches is not safe!! Since any virus/worm can attach a malicious code to any file
    & execute it to deadly effect!! Use a good anitvirus & update the virus definitions.
    Do a full System scan.

    If nothing works, format the drive in which you have installed Windows 2003 Server.
    And reinstall Windows. I think this should fix your problem.

    @JGuru... i know formatting the OS will solve my problem..
    But i came here thinking that i will get some solution for my prb.

    @saurav...
    There were some virusus found after the scan which was cleared by the software. After that i scanned the whole machine twice to confirm that there is no virus left behind..
