A newbie here.
I'm a competent PC user and have never had a problem with my own machine but my Dad has been hit a few times (probably been tricked into downloading / installing nasties as he is not the most PC savvy?)

His computer is running Windows 2000.
Symptoms are that windows explorer and control panel amongst other items will not open. When trying to start windows explorer all icons disappear for half a second then that's it.

He runs avg anti virus and ad aware.

I have his machine now at my home and have been unable to fix it with the usual the packages mentioned in a sticky at the top of this forum.

Is there anybody out there who could help me with it?

Ok, herer ya go. Try to get on the internet and look up common viruses for windows, bear in mind there are thousands. If you cant find any help on that take it in to your nearest microcenter if you have one or any other computer store.


Look, that's a pretty filthy sys there.... has/had vundo, got a couple worms/backdoor hacks, miscellaneous others - what have you got against a format, installation?
Anyway, let's see what this does:
It appears that you have a vundo infection, or traces of one, so please rename hijackthis.exe to imabunny.exe - this is important!!
==Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop from http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=4
==Download this file to your desktop: http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
Restart your system in Safe Mode.
Double-click VundoFix.exe to start it. Click the Scan for Vundo button.
When the scan completes click the Remove Vundo button.
You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files - click YES
Your desktop will then go blank as the process of removing Vundo starts.
When completed it will prompt that it will restart your computer - click OK.
Note: It is possible that VundoFix encountered a file it could not remove. In this case, VundoFix will run on reboot, simply follow the above instructions starting from "Click the Scan for Vundo button." when VundoFix appears at reboot.
Check the Vundofix log for any entries that could not be deleted - if present rerun Vundofix.

And now this:
- dclick combofix.exe and follow the prompts to start it. When finished, it will produce a log, C:\Combofix.txt - post that log in your next reply.
A word of caution - do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed. The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop.

Good, Post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt, C:\combofix.txt plus a new HijackThis log, run last in normal mode.
