I am not sure if this is the right forum to post this but here goes:-
I had MS Blaster which was shutting down all my programs. Now I find I have WORM AGOBOT.UY which seems to prevent me from running any virus software. It is in C:\windows\system32\msnmsgr.exe and I tried the malaware fix but it never lists the program as running. I don't want to have to do a reformat can anyone help me please?
Brief synopsis. Something was sent to me in an offline message which deleted or corrupted my vmm.vxd files. I called a computer tech and asked how much to fix the computer. He said $143. I know this probably isn't much but I could ill afford it. Sighs. Anyway I said ok. After a couple of hours on my computer he handed me a bill for $500.50. I was aghast. Talked to his boss on the phone who said ....."that is per hour lady". I mean I am not stupid but it never occured to me when he said $143 it meand PER HOUR. Anyway I said I can't pay that so he ordered his tech to take my computer. After much ado the tech left the computer but put a password block on it so I could not access bios. I had to take it to a second tech to fix that. Since then I have had all these problems. Could he have put something in my computer? By the way, I paid the $143 that I agreed and said we would have to debate the rest. The computer is an old 300 and barely worth $50 so I think they should have informed me a little better.
So far I have found blaster, w32/geobot.ek, win32.netsky.c@mm and agobot.uy.
Can anyone please help me get rid of all these bugs without having to reformat????? Treat me gently please I am not totally computer literate.
