I came here to bump my last post but it looks as though it was never received.
The machine has xp pro.
My system restore points are gone.
My computer will not connect to the internet.
I am writing this on another machine.
The machine shuts down after about 20 minutes.
AVG does not fix the problem.
The my docs folder keeps opening.
I am urged to scan my computer by something called real-av.org.
My desktop background image is flashing "WARNING" in red.
Or I could re-install xp pro . . . . but what if this virus remains with my backed up files ?
I can post a hijack this log, but am not sure how to get it off the machine and onto this one safely.
Thanks for your help . . .
