I went to the following site: hxxp://www.thekeys.ws/?look=prevx+csi+3 ... vation+key
and downloaded some .exe file and ran it like a fool. It was immediately detected by my av for some backdoor dropper virus. And after that i am having problems working in windows in normal mode. Everything just hangs and the mouse doesnt respond and it takes a lot of time to load the desktop. Also applications get hung and task manager also does not respond. The computer has just come fresh after a windows re-installation. I know i shouldn hav downloaded that file. But now i want to repair the system. PLease help me. I am using windows xp sp2, intel t1300 1.66ghz, 1gb ram and 80 gb hdd. I am using avast home edition v4.8.

There's no free lunch. People who are looking to cheat software developers often find they have cheated no one but themselves. The carrot that's dangled in front of your nose usually turns poisonous when you feed it to your computer.

If this is indeed a fresh installation of XP, it may be faster and simpler for you to reformat and reinstall Windows rather than attempt a clean-up.
