Hi, sorry that i posted my problem in another thread :o , but i thought as long as its the same problem, may be i will benfit from same reply. sorry again.
I have a PIII with windows XP. i got infected with the hacktool virus 3 days ago. i have norton antivirus 2003. it did nothing, can't remove virus only quarantine. then it returned back (virus) and norton even failed to quarantine it. then i downloaded avg antivirus, it found many infections norton didn't say anything about them, about 11 but in final report it only removed 10. i rebooted and ran norton and avg again and all was clean. then the second day i downloaded spybot S& D and adware and they removed a lot of things but after i was connected to the net again. i discovered that the virus returned . its in the file windows\system32\msdirectx.sys. i ran avg again and again removed 10 infected files of 11, so i know the virus is still there somewhere. i downloaded hijack this now and i am going to try it. sorry to bother u but any help will be appreciated
