Formatting would be the last option. What about your anti-virus? Get a copy of AVAST anti-virus. It should solve your problem.

NOD32 rocks my comp 😀
Post-installation scan will take out all virii in your memory. THen run the .exe and take out all the baddies off your hdd.

Have you tried AVAST? If yes, how does it compare with NOD32?

biggie i recently found out a virus that runs a process wscntf.exe which my version of avast couldn't detect but nod32 did. i dunno if other version/copies can clean this up but i have this feeling that nod32 works better

simple way is to get a copy of norten free antivirous and scan or otherwise tell me name of that virous;-)

I have tried Avast, heres my take -

  1. Updates are frequent on NOD
  2. It takes care of around 98% of my problems. The other 2% I take care of my Spybot S&D, frequent registry and msconfig stints
  3. Avast was good, but NOD is way lighter

I'm using symantec endpoint protection. I guess it is better than avast. Along with symantec, am also using Malware antibytes... With these two, situation is just ok 😁 Virus free!

Use any Live OS Linux CD,

Boot from that disk and Explore your C drive.

Delete virus file from System32 directory.

I personally use nod32 in my laptop and used Kaspesky in my desktop. If evrything fails to remove the virus, you can always reformat the drive and re-install.

dear rutuja gogte
If u get virus in c drive, u cant do anything. u cant delete the virus also. so, u must format the c drive. otherwise the virus ll be spreaded to other drives. so format as soon as possible.
bye
