Hi silverxx11,
Unfortunately, you have a very dangerous, catastrophic infection, with "backdoor" capabilities.
This allows intruders to remotely control the computer, log keystrokes, steal critical system information, and download and execute files of their own.

A description of the infection is here:
http://www.computersecurityarticles.inf ... layer-exe/

  • Get this machine OFF the Internet. It can infect others.
  • If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC, or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable. This would include contacts like your Internet Provider, email, banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, online companies, and any online forums or groups to which you belong.
  • It would be wise to contact any of the financial institutions directly and apprise them of your situation.
  • Do NOT change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the intruder may get the new passwords and transaction information.

Once infected with this type of Worm, the ONLY course of action is to completely Re-install the Windows Operating System from scratch. That is my best advice to you.
How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and Credit Card Fraud?

In this case, the infection is known as a file infector.
It corrupts possibly hundreds of system files, so there is NO REMEDY except to either do a COMPLETE RECOVERY, using the Manufacturer's option at bootup, or a complete "reformat/re-install" of Windows.
Performing a complete disk reformat and fresh installation of windows will work, if you have an installation disk.
Only an option that puts the machine back into its "as purchased" state will work. Any "Repair install" or similar will fail.

If you don't have a Windows system disk, you may be able to get one at reasonable cost from the manufacturer.
The only safe programs to re-install would be from original installation CDs.

thnx for the response. the problem is that i have not got a backup of all the stuff on my pc. as such, would it be ok to take copies of jpg, doc, xls and my outlook mail files before i wipe the c drive ?

lastly, is there a way to detect what files are actually infected from the ones i copy? the reason i am asking is bcos per your response, you make mention of the fact that it is only system files that have been affected and not jpg, doc, xls or emails.

thnx again for all your help

If you back up anything, make SURE that the saved files are scanned by an antivirus before any are used in a new machine setting.
The infection can corrupt any kind of media files as well as system files.

As this issue will need to be resolved with a reformat, this topic is now closed.
