got the above virus on daughters machine. ntlnetguard picks it up and deletes it on ever boot. searched through the system for it, but no joy. run scans (in safe mode as well) of netguard, xoftspy, spyware doctor and ad-aware but cant shift it. wanted to scan the registry for it but couldnt open regedit. said another application was using the application. unable to bring up the task manager to see whats running.
She used to have some garbage called limewire which I have trashed (hopefully!) which is -I think-at the root of all this.
I may (read:probably)end up formatting and re-installing, but has anyone got any ideas?
solved this (fingers crossed!) by doing a remote scan across my network from another machine with norton on. It found a copy-if thats the word-of svchost.exe in the startup folder of start-allprograms. I turned off system restore then restarted in safe mode and deleted the offending article. it was about 212k, whereas the proper one was about 14k, and it was even a different icon.
