I had read all the threads regarding this nasty and I have made some progress but now I am stuck.
I have a HP Pavilion 775y desktop, 2 megs ram
I am running windows XP
Earlier today I used system restore by using command.com which allowed me to access the internet and my icons reappeared but I still cannot run anything. Upon booting I get an error that Rundll32.exe was not found. Nothing loads into my tray either.
I don't know what to try at this point.
