Got 'bit' real hard with :downloader32\Bloodhound.Packed\Trojan Agent J...depending on the anti-virus program I'm running..which really hurt my system..took days to get it sorted...I'm back on-line now but every time I restart the problem is back and installing itself into my HKLM..\Run & RunServices folder in the registry.
I traced it back to a file in Documents and Settings that was running a taskmger.exe and a winsrv.exe app/file and deleted it..seemed to work.
Then I tried reinstalling XP just to start again clean..BUT..I now get an error message that says Windows is protecting itself..asks me if I want to load an SCAI or RAID something or other and tels me to check for bad hardware or viruses..also that F parameter is missing..
I hit restart and then it lets me choose betweeen setup and XP home [my old XP]...
In all honesty I can live with my old XP so..can anyone tell me how to undo the second setup or remove it from the startup/boot protocol so it doesn't constantly pop-up when I start the computer? That's first.
And second..IMPORTANT...can anyone tell me what virus I may have gotten so I can kill it once and for all?
Every AV/NAV/Sygate/TrojanZapper and Trend-Micro fix I've tried tells me I'm clean and yet the problem keeps coming back.
Oh yes..I also had to get rid of CThelper.exe which seems to have its own taskmgr.....that came wirth my Dell [Audigy] sound card from Creative tech..
Thank you so much for the advice.
